Siruvani River

Part of the Siruvani River

The Siruvani River is a river near Coimbatore, South India. It is tributary of Bhavani river,[1] which in turn is a tributary of Kaveri. Part of the Siruvani River is near Mannarkkad in the Indian District Palakkad, Kerala. The river leads into two big tourist attractions in Southern India, namely, the Siruvani Dam and the Siruvani Waterfalls. The Dam is also near The Banan Fort. Banan Fort and the Siruvani Dam, are just 15 km-25 km, west of Coimbatore city. The river has a village named after it, or possibly vice-versa.


In 2012, the Government of Kerala proposed the construction of a Check dam on the river to ensure usage of the states allocation of water under the Kaveri Tribunal.[2] Tamil Nadu opposed this plan citing that it would disrupt water supply to the city of Coimbatore and would affect inflow into the River Bhavani, therefore affecting agriculture in the Erode and Tirupur districts.[1][3] Tamil Nadu has threatened to take up the matter with the Supreme Court of India.[4][5] It receives the Siruvani River which has the Second tastiest water in the world , a perennial stream of Coimbatore District, and gets reinforced by the Kundah river before entering Erode District in Sathyamangalam Tamil nadu.
