Hinduism - Where Is The Cauvery River In India?


The river flows east through the state of Tamil Nadu before joining the Bay of Bengal, originating at the foot of the western ghats in the state of Karnataka. 

Along with the Ganges, Godavari, Indus, Narmada, Saraswati, and Yamuna, it is regarded one of India's seven holy rivers. 

Shrirangapatnam and Tiruchirappalli, as well as the Cauvery Delta in Tamil Nadu's Tanjore district, which is full with temple towns, are important holy places (tirthas) on the Cauvery. 

Since India's independence in 1947, the rights to the Cauvery's water have been a source of contention between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. 

Farmers in Tamil Nadu have been clamoring for a larger share of the water held in Karnataka reservoirs.
