- The Buldana District Gazetteer (1910) particularly notes that the river takes its source from a spring of water under an umar (ficus glomerata) near the temple of Mahadeo at Dongarshevali.

- It is also sometimes spelt as "Gyanganga" or just "Gyan" as the Marathi consonant 'ज्ञ' is pronounced differently in Marathi and other Indian languages. Ganga is used as a suffix in the name of several other rivers in India.
