The Rupnarayan River is a river in eastern India. It begins as the Dhaleswari (Dhalkisor) in the Chhota Nagpur plateau foothills northeast of the town of Purulia. It then follows a tortuous southeasterly course past the town of Bankura, where it is known as the Dwarakeswar River. Near the town of Ghatal, the Silai joins it, where it takes the name Rupnarayan. Finally, it joins the Hoogli River. The Rupnarayan River is famous for the Hilsa fish that breed in it and are used widely in Bengali cuisine. It is also distinguished for the West Bengal Power Development Corporation Limited (WBPDCL) thermal power plant at Kolaghat.
