Manthani Godavari (Dakshina Ganga)
The Godavari is the second longest river in India after the river Ganga. It starts in Maharashtra and flows for 1,465 kilometres (910 mi) into the Bay of Bengal via the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. It forms one of the largest river basins in india, only Ganges Yamunarivers have more catchment area than it, and its catchment area is largest of peninsular India.
The Manthani village is surrounded by the Godavari river in the northern side(Dakshina Ganga).It is nearly 3 kilometers from manthani bus stand.The Village stands good for its name “Mantrakoota Sahasra Linga Sthanam” as there are ‘Sahasra’ (Thousand, literally ‘innumerable’) Shiva Lingams scattered all over the village and as well as on the banks of river Godavari.
Kaleshwaram (Triveni Sangamam)
Kaleshwaram is located exactly at the merging point of the Godavari river and its tributary, the river Pranhita. People believe that there is another river named Saraswathi flowing under Godavari and Pranhita, therefore calling the meeting point as “Triveni Sangamam”, with Triveni meaning “Three” and Sangamam meaning “confluence.” Kaleshwaram is the center for Pushkaras which are organised once for every 12 years. Saraswathi Pushkaras took place in 2013 summer and Godavari pushkaras took place in 2015 after formation of Telangana State. Telangana government is planning to construct a Barrage for Irrigation near to this town.
