Shivna River is an important tributary of Godavari, flowing in the state of Rajasthan. In old maps this river is written as SAU and SEU. The origin of the river is in the Raipuri Hills that lies four km away from Salamgarh of Chittorgarh district in Rajasthan.
At the bottom of hills there is a small village named Shavna and the River Shivra flows along this village, thus being a source of water to the villagers. There are eight ancient temples in this region, namely Mahakaal, Chaubis khamba temple and others. The source of this river is near by Shavna village and thus this river is popular as Shivna.
At a place named Borkhedi Ghat, Shivna meets Chambal River after flowing for 63 km.
