From the dam main road there are steps to go down to these siphoning system. A well supported stair case was done without cement
Hirebhaskara Dam construction started in the year 1929. The chief architct was Mr.Sri.Ganapati Iyer. The construction involved 900 manpower. This was one of the unique dam with 11 siphoning system.
Though I had been to Signadooru Chowdeshwari temple quite often, I never came across Hirebhaskara dam. Hirebhaskara Dam islocated near Holebaagilu village. The dam was constructed to store Sharavati river water and use of power generation. The entire dam area is under Bhadra reserve forest. Permission is required to see this submerged dam. From Holebagilu we need toenter Bhadra Reserve Forest gate and travel 3- 4 kms to reach the dam.
