In brief about krishna river

                   The Krishna is the second largest east flowing river of the Peninsula. It rises in the Western Ghats just to the north of Mahabaleshwar , about 64 km from the Arabian Sea and flows for a distance of 1,400 km to the Bay Of Bengal  easterly direction .

The Koyna , the Ghatapraba , the Malpraba , the Bhima , the Tungabhadra , the Musi and the Muneru are its important tributaries .


The Koyna is a small tributary but is very famous for Koyna Dam. This dam was perhaps the main cause of the devastating earthquake in 1967. .



The Bhima originates from the Matheron Hills and joins the Krishna 26 km from Raichur after flowing in the south – easterly directions for a distance of 861 km . Mula , Mutha , ghod and nora are its sub – tributaries . The Tungabhadra is formed by the unification of the Tunga and the Bhadra originates from Gangamula in the central Sahyadri . Its total length is 531 km . At Wazirabad , it receives its last important tributary , the Musi , on whose banks is the famous city of Hyderabad is located . The Krishna delta appears to merge with that formed by the Godavari and extends about 35 km into the Sea.
