The Mahi is a river in western India. It rises in Madhya Pradesh and, after flowing through the Vagad region of Rajasthan, enters Gujarat and flows into the Arabian Sea. It is one of three west-flowing rivers in India, along with Tapti River and the Narmada River. Most peninsular rivers in India flow in an easterly direction into the Bay of Bengal.
The exact position of Mahi River origin is Minda Village, which is situated in Dhar district Madhaya Pradesh.
Mahi River, stream in western India. It rises in the western Vindhya Range, just south of Sardarpur, and flows northward through Madhya Pradesh state. Turning northwest, it enters Rajasthan state and then turns southwest to flow through Gujarat state through the north of Vadodara city outskirts and enters the sea by a wide estuary past Khambhat after about a 360-mile (580-km) course. The silt brought down by the Mahi has contributed to the shallowing of the Gulf of Khambhat and the abandonment of its once-prosperous ports. The riverbed lies considerably lower than the land level and is of little use for irrigation.
The river Mahi is worshipped by a lot of people and has a lot of temples and places of worship along its shore. It is popularly described as Mahisagar due to the vastness of the river. The newly formed Mahisagar district in Gujarat derives its name from this pious river.
On the River Mahi there is a dam named mahi dam near Banswara in Rajasthan. The whole of Gujarat gets water to drink from the dam. The dam is made up of mud with 16 gates in it. It has many alligators, crocodiles and turtles in it. The current in charge of Mahi dam is Jagarnath Singh. It was built under the supervision of Banwarilal Gupta.
