Kaveri River

The Kaveri (sometimes written as Cauvery) is one of the major rivers of southern India. It arises from hill streams in the Western Ghats of Coorg. The temple at Talakaveri[?] is traditionally considered as the point of origin of this river. The Kaveri flows west to east through the South Indian states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu before emptying into the Bay of Bengal.

The Kaveri river is the locus of a water dispute between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. That dispute is complicated by, and mirrors, political issues of resentment and one-up-manship between the peoples of the two states.
