The main water divide in peninsular rivers is formed by the Western Ghats, which run from north to south close to the western coast. Most of the major rivers of the peninsula such as the Mahanadi, the Godavari, the Krishna and the Kaveri flow eastwards and drain into the Bay of Bengal. These rivers make delta at their mouths. The Narmada, Periyar, and Tapti are the only long rivers, which flow west and make estuaries.

This is an important topic in Geography for UPSC and State PSC exams. There are many who are unable to answer simple questions in UPSC CSE regarding the Peninsular River system. This lesson will help you to learn all the important points that are commonly asked in various competitive exams.
