The beautiful Kaveri ( or Cauvery) river originates from the Hills of Karnataka near Mysore  and culminates into the Bay of Bengal after traversing through the state of  Tamil Nadu.

All the lands it touches transform into  a wonderful hue of Green and natural beauty and it is no wonder it is also referred to as the Ganges of the South.

Kaveri or Cauvery River

The aqueduct you see in this picture close to the city of Mysore carries the precious waters of the Kaveri River and was originally built in the 17th century by the Wodeyar rulers of Mysore.

The waters of the Kaveri river are currently the centre of a huge controversy between the two states it traverses.

The surroundings of the Ancient  12th century Keshava Temple at Somnathpur  are kept green by the life giving waters of The River Kaveri.

  2. It is fun to look at your blog when I am IN India. Such a gorgeous and blessed place. I feel the sensations I feel when I am in India just by looking at these Water is Life photos.

    I have a question for you. I saw you looked at the post I put up last night. The one I called A Fascinating Plant. Do you have any idea what it is? I’ve never seen anything like the spiral at the end.

    1. Thank you for sharing your lovely thoughts. I am aware you visit Amritpuri on a regular basis. The region you are located in now in Kerala is a rich area in terms of biodiversity as it gets a lot of rainfall and temperature is temperate around the year. I will need to do some research to find out about the fascinating species you have posted.

  3. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics
    and videos, this site could certainly be one of the greatest in its
    field. Good blog! http://wadelinville.wikidot.com/blog:2


  4. I do believe all of the concepts you have introduced for your post.
    They are really convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very
    brief for beginners. Could you please lengthen them a
    bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
