Flowing of Vedavathi River
Vedavathi River rises from the Western Ghats and flows through the states of Karnataka
and Andhra Pradesh before merging with the Tungabhadra. Two rivers, the Veda and Avathi, arise in the eastern part of the Sahyadri Hill range
, flowing towards the east, and joining near Pura to form the Vedavathi River.
Suvarnamukhi, a tributary, meets with Vedavathi at Koodalahalli, Hiriyur Taluk. It is considered to be a 'Punya Bhumi' or 'Sacred Land' by the locals. The Vedavathi river then flows from Hiriyur towards Narayanapura, Parashurampaura, Vrindavanahalli, where river flows circularly, hence village
called Vrindavana Halli. It then flows to Jajur (moodala jajur) Nagagondanahalli, Janamaddi and then enters Andhra Pradesh i.e. Bhairavnapippa Dam. On the banks of Nagagondanahalli there is a famous math by name Chilumeswamy who was an avadhoot. Here a fair is organized every year which is visited by lakhs of people.
The River then flows down to the Southeastern state of Andhra Pradesh where the river is called the 'Hagari'. The river has a cultural importance with the people along the zone of the Hagari. The river fulfills most of the requirements of the people of this area.
