The river Godavari rises in the Nasik district of Maharastra about 50 miles from the shore of Arabian sea, at an elevation of 3500 feet, after flowing for about 910 miles in a general south-easterly direction, through Maharastra and Andhra Pradesh, Godavari falls into the Bay of Bengal above Rajamundry. The Godavari has a drainage area of about 121,000 sq.miles.
