Sriram Sagar Project
Sriram Sagar project is built on the Godavari River in Nizamabad district of Telangana. It is an irrigation project which is also known as the Pochampad project or Khustapuram dam locally. Its foundation was laid by Jawahar Lal Nehru and is popularly considered to be the lifeline of Telangana. The irrigation needs of districts such as Warangal, Karimnagar, Adilabad, Nalgonda, and Khammam district are fulfilled by Sriram Sagar project. Sriram Sagar project has accommodation facilities nearby. A tourist department resort is located at Basara where the visitors can spend time and enjoy their vacations. The close proximity of the resort to the dam makes it a good resting place for tourists. Sriram Sagar has become a popular tourist spot due to the sweeping views of Godavari. The wide blue skies touching the crystal-clear waters make up for a beautiful landscape. There is also a well-maintained island near the dam which is an abode to a large variety of migratory birds in all the seasons.
