Ghod River is located in Pune District, Maharashtra, western India.[1] It is a tributary of the Bhima River.[2] The Ghod originates on the eastern slopes of the Western Ghats at 1,090 metres (3,580 ft) above sea level. It flows in an east-southeast direction for approximately 200 kilometres (120 mi) before its confluence with the Bhima. It flows from the northern side of the Bhimashankar hills.[3]

The Kukadi River is one of the tributaries of the Ghod. Inamgaon, a post-Harappan agrarian village located along the Ghod, has been studied for its archaeological finds.[4] The river is dammed by the Ghod Dam.
