The Vrishabhavathi River(Kannada: ವೃಷಭಾವತಿ ನದಿ) is a minor river that flows through the south of the Indian city of Bengaluru. The river was once so pristine that the water from it was used for drinking and used by the famous Gali Anjaneya temple.
The origin of the river is through near the Bull temple in Basavanagudi and she flows through major areas like Guddadahalli, Bapujinagar, RajaRajeshwari Nagar, Kengeri . An interesting fact about the river is that it culminates in a reservoir named after itself Vrishabhavathi Reservoir . It joins Arkavathy River near Kanakapura as a tributary.
