Tungabhadra dam

From Hospet bus terminal regular bus service to Dam- frequent service till 7Pm. Worth visiting. Dam garden, artificial animal park, a pleasant trip. No entry fee for dam visit. Enjoy sun set and huge river. In Hampi it's narrow and docile and then at Hospet it's huge. But for boat ride and garden to pay nominal amount. If you go to Hampi don't miss this Dam at Hospet.
