At a distance of 130 km from Bangalore & 81 km from Mysore, Shivanasamudra is a famous waterfall situated in Mandya District of Karnataka State. This is one of the best waterfalls near Bangalore and also among popular one day trip from Bangalore. These waterfalls are also known as Siva Samudram, literally meaning Shiva's Sea. Shivanasamudra is a segmented waterfall with several parallel stream formed adjacent to each other.
Gaganachukki includes a huge horsetail shaped waterfall dropping from a height of 90 m and two large parallel streams that cascade down through a rocky bed from a height of over 320 feet. The currents here are quite strong and the gorge is quite deep. So, swimming is not permitted here. Asia's first hydroelectric power station was set up in the downstream of the falls in the year 1905. The power generated here was initially used in Kolar Gold Fields. The power station is situated near a Dargah, from where you can have excellent views of the other side of Gaganachukki.
Bharachukki is situated at distance of approximately one km from the Gaganachukki (Dargah point). The cascading edge of Bharachukki is a little wider and more popular than that of Gaganachukki. Barachukki is a cascading fall with a height of 70 m forming several streams through the wide rocky formations establishing superb natural beauty. There are well laid plight of about 200 steps that lead down to the waterfall. The way down to the waterfall is relatively safe as it fenced with railings and there are benches to sit on and relax. An interesting way to watch the beauty of the waterfall is to take a coracle ride to the mouth of the magnificent waterfall. Barachukki also has a section of waterfall where the water flows less in volume and an ideal spot to play and enjoy a bath under the waterfall in this area.
The River Kaveri which takes birth in the hills of Kodagu, flows miles down and looks like an ocean near Krishnaraj Sagar dam. The other tributary Kabini joins later and after passing through forest ridden with rocks it becomes larger and takes a huge plunge near Shivanasamudra where a major first segmented waterfall takes its birth. Segmented waterfalls occur where the water flow is broken into two or more channels before dropping over a cliff, resulting in multiple side by side waterfalls. The first one which falls from a greater height is called Gaganachukki in Mandya district and the other with rapidity is called Bharachukki in Chamarajnagar district. The river water drops from a height of 98 meters at the perennial waterfall.
One can experience a ‘flash’ of lightening or sudden ‘flow of electricity’ through one’s body when the falls are in full flow. It was one such electrifying experience which drove the deputy chief engineer of erstwhile Mysore State, Maj. A.J. De Lotebiniere during one of his visits to the site which gave rise to idea of harnessing electricity. Thus, the first hydro electric power station of the state and Asia came into existence.
If one goes through the pages of history, it becomes clear that the ‘thought to action’ process in developing the hydro electric project began around 120 years ago when Nalvadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar was the king of Mysore. De Lotebiniere placed his proposal to develop a hydro electric power station in the area. Enthused by the proposal, the king offered all support and summoned Diwan Sir.K.Sheshadri Iyer and instructed him to give all support to the proposed project. Elephants, horses and bullock carts were used to carry the heavy equipment imported from United Kingdom and the U.S. to the hilly terrain. Wooden poles were brought specially from Australia for the purpose. With combined efforts a 700 KW hydro electric power station was established in the area.
