Important Lingayat historic place
KUDALA SANGAMA is the place of Basava's religious reforms around 800 years ago. The famous rivers Krishna and Ghataprabha merge here.
To improve this historic place, the Government has established a Kudala Sangama Development Board to develop this place into a premier pilgrimage centre.
Kudala Sangama is 15 Km’s from Almatti (Dam Site ) and 45 Km’s from Bagalkot.
You can ascend a staircase that goes below the water to protect Kudala Sangama when the Almatti dam was built.
