Telangana is the 29th state of India and came into existence on 2 June 2014. The states shares its borders with Andhra Pradesh in the south, Chhattisgarh in the east, and Maharashtra and Karnataka in the west. Located on the Deccan Plateau, Telangana, though blessed with the presence of a few major rivers of India, is mostly dry and experiences semi-arid climate, with monsoonal rainfall.

Two of Telangana's districts, Khammam and Nalgonda, fall in the catchment area of Nagarjuna Sagar dam. This dam, one of the earliest ones of India, supplies water for irrigation purposes and hydro power generation to the state.

Situated at a high altitude, Telangana has prominent perennial rivers such as Godavari in the north and the Krishna in the south. Other rivers such as Bhima, Manair, Penganga, Akeru, Dindi, Manjeera, Paleru, and Pedda Vagu also irrigate the state.

Telangana is separated from Andhra Pradesh by the Krishna River, which acts as a geographical divider between the two. The Krishna River is the third-longest river of the country, originating in the Satara District of Maharashtra in the Western Ghats. This rivers flows across the state of Karnataka before reaching Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Bhima is one of the prominent tributaries of Krishna River in Telangana.

River Godavari, the other most important river of Telangana, is the second-longest river of the country. This river originates in the Nashik district of Maharashtra and runs across the Deccan Plateau, before crossing Telangana and entering the Bay of Bengal. The river Manjeera is one of its major tributaries.
