About Shimsha Dam

The Shimsha Dam, also known as the Markonahalli Dam, is constructed across the Shimsha River at a height of 731.57 m above sea level. The dam was built by Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, the King of Mysore, for irrigating 6,070 hectares of land.

There is a pair of earth dams at this site that extends up to 1,470 m on either side. The dam can store around 68 million cu. m. water. The prominent fish in the dam are arulius barb and orange-fin labeo.
