Also, look for the musical fountain that blinks with colorful lights, as well as a mini zoo and aquarium, other worthy attractions in the area.

  • Huge Dam. Full of water and surround garden Gives it a very beautiful touch. Musical fountain at 7 PM can also be enjoyed. closing time is 7.30 so a visit should be planned accrordingly. Bus fairy runs between entrance gate and the dam at the cost of Rs 20 for up and down. The same bus runs between gate to dam and then to garden and brings back the visitors to the gate.
  • We visited during January month. We reached early morning at Hosapete. We took a walk to TB Dam. The things on the way was so nice. If you are planning to visit TB Dam then please do have a walk through the village... The place is so calm and quiet. We can spend our leisure time there have some clicks both in camera as well as in our mind and leave with lot of memories....
  • Wonderful place to visit. Just try to go on 15th of August as all the gates are open with water making a visual of Indian flag. It's just awesome
  • Nice place to spend time
  • We went during month of may due to which No water in dam
