India - February 11th, 2011

Several rivers, appearing tan in color due to sediments, can be seen flowing into the Bay of Bengal by the east coast of India. Closest to the right edge is the Godavari River. It originates near Trimbak in Nashik District of Maharashtra state and flows east across the Deccan Plateau into the Bay of Bengal near Narasapuram in West Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh.

Southwest of the Godavari is the Krishna River, one of the longest rivers in central-southern India at about 1,300 kilometres (810 mi) in length. The Krishna rises at Mahabaleswar in the extreme north of Wai taluka, Maharashtra in the west and meets the Bay of Bengal at Hamasaladeevi in Andhra Pradesh, on the east coast.
