Brindavan Garden
Located at a distance of 20 Kms northwest of Mysore. A Dam is constructed across the river Cauvery for irrigation purposes to cover the atchkat of mainly Mandya District and some parts of Mysore district. The Dam was completed in 1932 and named after Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV. The dam is 2606 m long and constructed entirely in stone in surkhi mortar. On the down stream of Dam the beautiful Brindavan Garden is stretched out, with well planned and well maintained lawns, innumerable pools, fountains. At night the gardens are transformed into a kind of fairy land when the concealed lights near the flower beds and fountains are turned on and add a new dimension to the garden. There are number of buses owned by KSRTC and private buses plying regularly from Mysore City Bus stand.
