Kenchanagudda is a Village in Siruguppa Taluk in Bellary District of Karnataka State, India. River Tungabhadra flows through this village, branching into seven streams. There are also seven kattes (platforms constructed of stones around a wide tree where a group of people sit for a chit-chat). The place is surrounded by more than a dozen hills. It has beautiful natural surroundings with a small waterfall gushing through the “anicut” (barrage), built during the Vijayanagar period.On the bank of the river there is the Vrindavana of Sri Vasudhendra Teertha. This place is a Brahmin Pilgrimage village. Surrounded by lush green paddy fields and rocky mountains, with a few ancient mantaps in the vicinity, water from the Tungabhadra flows from the anicut and makes the area a visual treat. “Kenchanagudda is also considered a “nisarga dhama.” The anicut is one of seven built to make optimum use of river water for cultivation. Even today, the anicut, built using huge boulders, is intact. One can still see the ancient canals functioning and irrigating fields in the area. The Kenchanagudda anicut caters to the irrigation needs of three villages. There is a hydro-electric power plant across one of the seven branches of the river. Many remains of the era of Vijayanagara Empire are found around the village.
