Bengaluru: The state government has approved the proposal to build a 350ft tall statue of Mother Cauvery at the Krishnaraja Sagar (KRS) reservoir in Mandya district.

Water Resources Minister D K Shivakumar and Tourism Minister Sa Ra Mahesh during a meeting in Bengaluru on Wednesday, November 15 approved the proposal.
 
Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, in his July 5 budget, had announced the government’s proposal to develop KRS on the model of Disneyland in USA and had earmarked an initial allotment of Rs 5 crore for the project.  As per the plan, the Cauvery statue will be built at KRS here next to the statue of Nalvadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar. 

The statue will stand on a 125ft base from where visitors can view the dam from the viewer’s gallery. The statue will assume the form of a woman holding a tipped pot, out of which water will pour out continuously. Water will be pumped up the statue to achieve this effect.
