Origin of the Smallest River in India
The river Arvari rises in Thanagazi in the Alwar district, near the Sakra dam. One of the two sources of the river is Bhairudev Public Wildlife Sanctuary near Bhavta Kaliyal (Bhuriyawas), the other near Amka and Jodhula. At Palsona Ka Pahar, near Ajabgarh-Pratapgarh, the two streams meet and from this point the river is known as Arvari and flows into the settlement of Hamirpur, where it joins the Nahar Nala, a stream from the west.
Geographical Location of Arvari River
The Arvari join the Sarsa River downstream of the Sainthal Sagar Dam to form the Sanwan River. The Sanwan river meets the Tildah and Banganga rivers to form the Gambhir river, which is popularly known as the Utang river. The River Gambhir joins the Yamuna in the Mainpuri region of Uttar Pradesh and the Yamuna meets the Ganges at the Prayagraj’s Triveni Sangam.
