Chambal River,the old mythological name of this largest river is Charmawati. It originates from Manpur near Mhow in Madhya Pradesh. It enters Rajasthan near Begun (in Chittorgarh district) and flows past Kota, Sawaimadhopur and Dholpur districts over a length of 376 kms. Chambal finally enters UP and meets Yamuna river. The main tributaries of Chambal are Kali Sindh, Banas and Parbati. The river flows for some 320 km in a generally northerly direction before entering a deep gorge in Rajasthan at Chourasigarh, about 96 km upstream of Kota. The deep gorge extends up to Kota and the river then flows for about 226 km in Rajasthan in a north-easterly direction, and then forms the boundary between MP and Rajasthan for about 252 km. Thereafter, the river forms the boundary between MP and UP for about 117 km, enters UP near Charak Nagar village and flows for about 40 km before joining river Yamuna.
