Ruins of one of the many villages submerged by the Tehri Reservoir (India)

View a close-up photo of the village ruins.

The Tehri Dam was (and still is) a very controversial project, as it flooded two valleys resulting in the destruction of numerous villages and a town (Tehri), all now submerged, and forced the relocation of about 100,000 people.
