It originates on the eastern slopes of the Western Ghats approximately 1,000 metres (3,300 ft) above sea level in the state of Tamil Nadu in southern India.[1] It then converges with the Tambaraparani River. Nine anicuts have been built across it before it loses its identity in the Tamiraparani.[2]

The total length of the river from its origin to its merger with the Tamiraparani is about 32 kilometres (20 mi).[3]
