Wardha River, Indian River
The Wardha River is the distributary of Godavari and a significant tributary of Pranhita River.
 
 The Wardha River is considered to be one of the biggest rivers in Vidarbha region in India and its starting spot is the Satpura Range near Multai in Madhya Pradesh. The river is a tributary of the Pranhita River, which finally flows into the Godavari River. Vena River, Bembala and Penganga River are the main tributaries of Wardha River. A huge dam called the Upper Wardha Dam is constructed on Wardha River near Morshi. This reservoir is considered as lifeline for Amravati city, Morshi and Warud Talukas. The latter place is considered as California of India for its orange gardens. A dam on Bembala river is under construction, which will serve as a lifeline for part of Yavatmal Dist.
