Rivers

One of the most striking feature of the river system of Bihar is the dominant role of Ganga. The important rivers that join the Ganga from the north are, from west to east, Ghaghra, the Gandak, the Burhi Gandak, the Kosi, the Mahananda and its tributaries. Sonpur, which is situated along Ganga's bank is famous for the great bathing festival which is the occasion for the greatest cattle and elephant fair in the world. The Karmanasa, the Sone, the Punpun, the Phalgu, the Sakri and the Kiul are the principal streams that joins the Ganga from the south.
