Shivanasamudra Falls is the location of the first hydro-electric power station in Asia, which was set up in the year 1902. Situated on the River Cauvery, it is a segmented waterfall that occurs where the water flow is broken into two or more channels before dropping over a cliff.
After River Cauvery has wound its way through the rocks and ravines of the Deccan Plateau, it drops off to form waterfalls in the town of Shivanasamudra. Twin waterfalls are formed when island town of Shivanasamudra divides the river. These multiple side by side waterfalls have an average width of 849 m, height of 90 m and average volume of 934 cubic m.
