At the time of explorer program, we went on a short drive to Markonalli Dam. RedmiK20Pro was extremely amazing device I've used till date. It's a true flagship I can say. Detailing on each and every pictures was absolutely awesome.

This place is around 93 Kms from Bangalore. Constructed across river Shimsha and Hemavathy, the dam serves as a water source for almost 4000 villages for agriculture. Shimsha is a sub-river of Kaveri and one of the three rivers which flow in Tumkur district. The dam has an automatic siphon system, very first of that kind in Asia - thanks to the great Sir MV.

It has 2 siphons , each 88 ft high. The mechanism of the siphon system in the dam enabled water to be flushed out of the reservoir automatically when it touched the optimum level. When the water inflow increases and water level reaches 88ft, extra water goes out of the dam unmanned. There is no need of any person to be present to open the gates. Main reason to implement this system is, if water increases by another 4 ft, the famous temple of Sri Siddalingeshwara in Yediyur will drown. Now there are 4 Mechanically controlled gates.
