Indira Sagar Dam is Asia’s most prestigious hydro power project. This multipurpose dam is built over the river Narmada in Khandwa at Narmadanagar. The foundation stone of this dam was laid by the former PM, Mrs. Indira Gandhi on 23 October 1984.
The sheer magnanimity of this dam makes this a tourist location. The Indira Sagar Dam is called the Gosikhurd Project and was constructed with the sole aim of offering water to the nearby villages of Bhandara, Nagpur and Chandrapur districts.
The site features a concrete gravity dam which is 92 m tall and 653 m long. The dam is about 75 km from the town of Khandwa. If you are one of those enthusiastic tourists who want to have a good look of this dam, you can reach this place via two stations, either from the Khandwa Railway Station or from the railway station at Bir.
