The Shivanasamudra Falls is on the Kaveri River after the river has wound its way through the rocks and ravines of the Deccan Plateau and drops off to form waterfalls. The island town of Shivanasamudra divides the river into twin waterfalls that is the Gaganachukki and Bharachukki Falls. GaganaChukki (90 metres)is in Malavalli, Mandya, Karnataka and BharaChukki (69 metres)is in Kollegal, Chamrajnagar, Karnataka, India. It is 139 km from the Bangalore city.

This creates the fourth largest island in the rivers course. A group of ancient temples are located here and there likely was a village. The western branch results in the twin waterfalls of Gaganachukki, whereas the eastern branch results in the Bharachukki falls. The Gaganachukki waterfalls are best viewed from the Shivanasamudra watch tower. There is another approach to the Gaganachukki falls from the Darga Hazrath Mardane Gaib (Imam Ali).
