In a deep canyon of Nallamala Hills, the dam was constructed of 512 m long and 145 m height. Perched at an altitude of 300 m above sea level, Srisailam dam has 12 radial crest Gates. Initialized around 1960s, power project was established across River Krishna. However the dam was completed in 1981. The dam actually serves multi-purposely like Hydro-electric power generation, fulfills the catchment area with water, irrigation for Kurnool and Kaddapa districts.
