The Son River (also spelled Sone) of central India is the largest of the Ganges’ southern tributaries, visible here as a thick, tan line crossing the image diagonally from the upper right to the lower left.

The Son river at 784 kilometres (487 miles) long, is one of the largest rivers of India. Its chief tributaries are the Rihand and the Koel. The Rihand River is visible in the lower left quadrant, flowing through the reservoir towards the Son.

The reservoir is called the Govind Ballabh Pant Sagar. The largest man-made lake in India, it was formed due to the construction of the Rihand Dam across the river Rihand.
