Nizamsagar Dam is constructed over a tributary of the Godavari river in the region of Nizamabad district in Andhra Pradesh.
Nizamsagar Dam is constructed on the river Manjira, which happens to be a tributary of the Godavari river. Nizamsagar Dam is an enormous dam which occupies a land cover of approximately 3 kilometers between the two towns of Achampet and Banjapalle.
This impressively constructed dam constitutes one of the major multi purpose projects conceptualized and executed by the government of India.
The dam even incorporates a traffic road above it that is almost 14 feet in width. The construction site is remarkable for considerable scenic beauty. The place is rather popular as a great picnic spot.
The lake that has come into being in the area because of the dam is also a beautiful water body. Water sourced from this lake is used to irrigate the lush fields that lie close to it.
Nizamsagar Dam is a local landmark of Hyderabad, attracting visitors in large numbers due to its picturesque location.
