Bluff Village

Bluff Village at Shivasamudram, is located on the way to the Shivasamudram waterfalls. Eastern Asia’s first hydro electric power generating station set up by the Dewan of Mysore in 1902, meant to supply power to the Kolar Gold Fields, is the main attraction. The area is called 'bluff' after the 137 m bluff, which is used to lay pipes for feeding the turbines at the generating station. The powerhouse is located at the foot of a hill. The power house can be reached by an exciting trolley ride. Accommodations are available at Karnataka Electricity Board (KEB) Circuit House.

Shivasamudram is located 20 km from Malavalli and 44 km from Mandya.
