The Nagarunja Sagar dam on India's Krishna River was built between 1955 and 1972. Erected by the hand labour of 125,000 workers, it is the largest masonry dam in operation in the world. Standing at 120m high, and 800m long, it is made up of huge rocks and mortar. Remote, rugged and extraordinarily beautiful, Alaska’s Aleutian Islands are best known for wildlife reserves, military bases, fishing, furs and fog. The archipelago sweeps about 1,200 miles (1,800 km) from the tip of the Alaskan Peninsula to Attu, the most westward island. Four major island groups hold 14 large islands, about 55 smaller islands, and a large number of islets, adding up to roughly 150 islands/islets in total.
