The Vrishabhavathi River(Kannada: ವೃಷಭಾವತಿ ನದಿ) is a minor river that flows through the south of the Indian city of Bengaluru.[1] The Vrishabhavathi is a tributary of the Arkavathy River.

It is highly polluted due to pollutants from industrial, agricultural and domestic sources.[2][1]

In 2005, the then Chief Minister of Karnataka, Dharam Singh proposed to remodel the river valley to include widening of the river, and adopt measures to prevent inundation.[3]
