world famous Vrindavan gardens on the terrace of the Krishna Raja Sagar
Dam, near the Mysore City, across the
river Cauvery is a meticulously planned garden.
It was built in 1932 during the rule of Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, who was a great lover of gardens and parks. The then Dewan or Prime Minister of the Maharaja, Sir Mirza Ismail, designed the enchanting garden.
The Krishna Raja Sagar dam is one of the earliest dams built in the country in 1932 AD by the renowned engineer statesman, Sir M. Visvesharaya during the reign of Krishna Raja Wodeyar.
Just below the dam, the beautiful gardens are laid on either side of big artificial lakes named the South-North yards.
The musical fountain is of special interest that presents a spectacular harmony of water, colours and music. There are varieties of fountains illuminated at night by colourful lights.
Every evening the gardens come alive in a burst of dazzling colours and illumination when twirling and dancing fountains lend an atmosphere of enchantment to this fairyland.
Boating facilities are available at the gardens.
Illumination Timings: Wednesdays 7:00 pm to 7:55 pm.
Saturdays & Sundays: 7:00 pm to 8:55 pm.
