Karamana River flows through Trivandrum. The river origins at Agasthyarkoodam peak. This peak is situated at the southernmost tip of the Western Ghats. The river falls in to the Arabian Sea after covering a distance of 68 km westward near Kovalam at Panathura area. The river is named after a suburb of Trivandrum city, Karamana through which it meanders.
Though the course of Karamana River is not very long compared to other rivers, it can still boast of having two dams built on it. The dams are Peppara Dam and Aruvikkara Dam, each constructed for different purposes. The Peppara Dam is built on the upper reach of the river and is used for irrigational purposes only. The Aruvikkara Dam provides water supply to Trivandrum for consumption. Aruvikkara Dam is also meant for irrigation. The river also has several bridges across it.
