This place was formerly called as Kannambadi. Earlier to this, it was known as Kanvapuri, where the sage Kanva is said to have had his ashrama and worshipped Lord Shiva. The place was later called the Kanveshvara temple, now submerged in the reservoir. The reservoir is named after Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, during whose rule Sir M. Visvesvaraya built the dam as Chief Engineer. About 24 inscriptions are found in this place. One of them in Persian speaks of Tipu’s efforts to build a dam at the same site. A jatra is held in honour of the Goddess Kalamma, whose temple is found on the north bank of the dam.
