Savitri (सावित्री नदी) is one of the 5 rivers which originate from Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra state in India.



It originates at Savitri point near Mahabaleshwar and flows through the bankot village and directly goes to Arabian Sea Raigad district[1] and eventually meets Arabian Sea at Harehareshwar. It passes through rocky and hilly terrain of western ghats till Poladpur and further through the towns of Mahad, Mangaon and Shrivardhan Tehsil (taluka). There are a number of Shiva temples along the banks of river Savitri. Many other small rivers get merged into it at Kapade, Poladpur and Birwadi. Its major tributary is the Kal River which enters from the right (north) near Dasgaon.[2]

The other four rivers originating from Mahabaleshwar (Panchaganga) are: Gayatri River, Koyna River, Krishna River, and Venna River.
