Peninsular rivers

The main peninsular rivers of India include the Godavari, Krishna, Cauvery, Narmada, Tapti, Narmada, Mahanadi, and Damodar. Most of these rivers originate in the Western Ghats and drain a large part of central and south India. These peninsular rivers are seasonal but carry a great volume of water fed by rainfall. The Mahanadi, Godavari, Krishna, Cauvery flow eastwards and drain into the Bay of Bengal. Tapti and Narmada flow westwards and enter the Arabian Sea.
