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.

The dam actually serves multi-purposely like Hydro-electric power generation, fulfills the catchment area with water, irrigation for Kurnool and Kaddapa districts.
