Hinduism - Where Is Godavari In India?


In central India, there is a river that runs from west to east.

On the inland side of the western Ghats, the Godavari's headwaters are in Maharashtra.

It passes through that state before entering the Bay of Bengal in Andhra Pradesh.

Along with the Ganges, Yamuna, Cauvery, Saraswati, Narmada, and Indus, the Godarvi is considered one of India's seven holy rivers.

The Godavari is known as the "Ganges" in central India, where it is considered the most holy river for Hindus.

Although the Godavari is holy throughout its whole course, the most significant religious places are in the west: Nasik, Tryambakeshvar, and Paithan.

Also see ghat.
