The famous site of the huge dam across the Krishna river, Almatti is a railway station between Bagalkot and Vijayapura and about 25 km north of Bagalkot and about 46 km south of Vijayapura. This spot with fine natural surroundings where the Krishna changes her course from the south to the east has the huge dam across the Krishna completed now submerging over 150 villages including major parts of Bagalkot town. The huge dam is 1.6 km long and is 40 meter high. A beautiful park and guesthouses are coming up near the park, and one can visit the place easily by bus from Bagalkot or Basavana Bagewadi (the taluk headquarters, 27 km away). Great freedom fighter Hardekar Manjappa had his ashram here and the site of his samadhi is submerged, and the samadhi has now been shifted to a nearby park.
