Prakasam Barrage Krishna district Andhra Pradesh

Prakasam Barrage, across the river Krishna is 1223.5 mt long  connecting Krishna and Guntur districts.The barrage serves also as a road bridge and spans over a lake.The three canals associated with the barrage run through the city of Vijayawada crossing it and giving it a Venetian appearance.  The dam was started in 1852 and completed in 1855. Later, the State Government constructed a bridge that was named after Sri Tanguturi Prakasam, the first Chief Minister of Andhra (A State formed in 1953, which later became Andhra Pradesh in 1956 after the merger of Telugu speaking districts of former Hyderabad State). Completed in 1957 it helps irrigating over 12 lakh (1.2 Million) acres of land.

 This barrage also supplies water to Buckingham canal which was constructed as inland navigation canal initially but later used as irrigation water supply canal. One of the first major irrigation projects of South India, the Prakasam Barrage in Vijayawada was completely successful in its mission.Andhra Pradesh largely owes its rich agriculture to the Prakasam dam as the project facilitated the irrigation of large tracts of farmland. The dam provides views of the lake. It has become a tourist attraction of Vijayawada
