Krishnagiri, Tamil Nadu, India's 30th district, owes its name to the various black granite hillocks that are part of the landscape. With a surface area of around 5143 sq km, Krishnagiri has a lot to offer as a travel destination. In the midst of breathtaking nature, while the KRP Dam is the most popular tourist attraction, Krishnagiri houses many other archaeological sites, temples, parks, forts and memorials.
Mango is one of the largest crops in Krishnagiri district, colloquially known as the King of Fruits. The village of Santhur, home to over a hundred and fifty mango nurseries, is truly the capital of mango cultivation in Tamil Nadu, and a calming sight for city-weary eyes is the large mango groves. In the harvest season, visitors may find themselves in the midst of a treasure trove of ripe and juicy mangoes.
The mango exhibition is hosted annually by Krishnagiri, during which tourists and farmers can be exposed to technical developments in agricultural practises. Although the exhibition is for farmers and growers, it offers a photo opportunity like no other for photo enthusiasts. Countless varieties and the countless mango shades on display truly renew reverence for nature. The mango show is a feast that can not be duplicated for those who enjoy eating the fruit.
In And Around Krishnagiri Tourist Places
Krishnagiri is a spiritual retreat for people of various religions, much like the rest of Tamil Nadu. Ancient temples also break up the landscape of Krishnagiri. The land was controlled by the emperors of Nulambas, Cholas, Gangas, Pallavas, Hoysalas, Vijaynagar, Bijapur, Wodeyars of Mysore, and Nayaks of Madurai in different ways. Each ruler designed places of worship unique to the time and architectural and spiritual traditions that prevailed.
Krishnagiri Reservoir : Located 7 km outside Krishnagiri city, the Krishnagiri Reservoir (KRP Dam) prevents and regulates the flow of the Thenpennai River. KRP Dam, situated between Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri, provides Krishnagiri with drinking water and irrigates thousands of acres of farmland surrounding it. The dam, inaugurated in 1958, harnesses the maximum capacity of the river Ponnaiyar. The KRP Dam has been an oasis of lush landscaped gardens since the time it opened.
The gardens offer a quiet spot far from the hustle and bustle of city life. For this reason, it is very often that locals and visitors flock to the dam. Between November and March, particularly the post-monsoon season when rain fills the river to the brimming capacity, the best season to visit the dam is. It is usually post-monsoon when the floodgates are open and while standing on the dam, one can hear the thunder of water rushing under your feet. The dam is well connected by road; Bangalore International Airport is the closest airport and Hosur railway station is the nearest railway station (5 km).
Kelavarapalli Reservoir : The Ponniar river, which originates on the eastern slopes of the Chennakesava hills, has irrigation projects developed across it, such as the Kelavarapalli Reservoir and the Sathanur Reservoir. In the surrounding areas, the dam sustains agricultural projects and provides Hosur with drinking water. In its 331 km journey, the Ponniar River sustains agriculture, flora and fauna, providing drinking water for cities along its course.
The 13.5-metre-high dam provides bright views of the river and the landscaped gardens surrounding the dam. Not only for being an oasis of peace and nature, but for being a refuge for birds, the dam is well known. Kelavarapalli Reservoir and the surrounding area are home to a large number of migratory birds. As the residents and migratory birds flock to the river and the surrounding area, a visit to the Kelavarapalli Reservoir is a treat like no other.
Avid birdwatchers argue that there is no sound like a bird's call and there is no place to see birds like Kelavarapalli Reservoir. For kids and adults, Kelavarapalli Reservoir is an enjoyable location. A beautiful park with a set-up of play equipment is a treat for children while adults enjoy nature's serenity.
Government Museum : An attraction for both the young and the old is the Government Museum on Gandhi Road in Krishnagiri. The Government Museum was established in 1993 and has an infinite collection that grows with each passing year, providing an insight into Tamil Nadu's tradition, art and architecture, culture, heritage and history. Not only is the museum a place for leisure, but also a place for education. In an age where sweeping globalisation erases individuality and identity, the museum keeps heritage and culture visible and alive. The museum gathers, classifies and performs studies on different artefacts' historical significance. The museum contains displays on anthropology, botany, archaeology, geography, zoology, the children's gallery and the drawing gallery.

Shree Parshwa Padmavathi Shaktipeet Tirth Dham is a spiritual organisation founded by His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Vasanth Gurudev Ji in Orappam village, 7 km outside of Krishnagiri. The 23rd of the 24 tirthankaras, Sri Parshwanath Bhagwan, is worshipped in the temple in the holy dharma of Jainism. The organisation encourages peace and harmony, values that are personified and expressed by the temple.
The temple is a sanctuary of peace and quiet, while being vibrant and joyful, inspiring devotees to find their own inner peace and calm, to be balanced so that society as a whole can be balanced and harmonious. By helping the poor, the founder, Sri Sri Sri Vasanth Gurudev Ji, has participated in various global peace conferences and promotes spiritual well-being.

Rajaji Memorial : The house that Chakravarthi Rajagopalachari (10 December 1878-25 December 1972) was born and raised in until he was 11 years old is the Rajaji Memorial in Thorapalli. C. Rajagopalachari was a freedom fighter and a chief of calibre, or Rajaji as he is fondly remembered. C. Rajagopalachari was not only Tamil Nadu's chief minister, he was the leader of the Indian National Congress, the Indian Union's minister for home affairs, the governor of West Bengal and the prime minister of the Madras presidency.
The first Indian viceroy and the last governor general of India was Rajagopalachari. The winner of the Bharath Ratna award was Rajaji, fondly remembered as the Mango of Salem. Rajaji was a righteous leader who gave absolute justice to every cap he wore. There are several lessons to be learned from the lifetime of Rajaji that are important to this day. The memorial holds his memory alive with his possessions and his life storey, immortalised in photos.
Little England is often referred to as Thali, a peaceful, serene oasis of a village. Countless lakes, hillocks, cliffs and valleys make for an environment that has something for all to offer. Thali, situated 25 km from Hosur, is accessible from both Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Given the scenery, treks and hikes in Thali are extremely popular. The views provided by long hikes are second to none and worth the effort to climb the steep trails.
Thali is a stopover for travellers between Bangalore and Krishnagiri, given its proximity to Krishnagiri, Bangalore and Hosur. The cool, quiet shade of trees invites passersby to have a picnic and relax in the lap of nature. Other than nature, those interested in history are attracted by the Denkanikottai Fort, founded in 1530 by Palayakarar. While partially demolished, the fort resonates with history, even to this day.
