River Hemavati, which starts in the Western Ghats at an elevation of about 1,219 m, is the tributary of the Kaveri River. After originating near Ballala rayana durga in the Chikmagalur District of the state of Karnataka, it flows through Chikmagalur, Hassan District and Mysore District before joining the Kaveri near Krishnarajasagara.

Approximately 245 km long, the river is an important contributor to the ecosystem of the town. Owing to the notable temples located near the site, Hemavati Reservoir is also a pilgrimage spot.
