Pahuj River is a river flowing through the historic city of Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh.
It probably originates near the hills of Jhansi or in Tikamgarh district of Madhya Pradesh. It has been referred as the Pushpavati in religious texts.

This river also flows through Unnao Balaji 20km from Jhansi, famous for Sun Temple and people. It is a tributary of the Sindh River, which joins the Yamuna River in Etawah, Uttar Pradesh state, just after the Chambal River confluence with the Yamuna river.

It is a small and dry river which passes through the Indian Grassland and Fodder Research Institute, Jhansi.

Due to the construction of Pahuj dam near Jhansi, the river has increased its water level and the dam is an important picnic spot for Jhansi city-dwellers.
