Damodar River (Bengali: দামোদর নদ) originates near Chandwa village, Palamau district, on the Chota Nagpur Plateau in the Jharkhand state in eastern India and flows eastward for about 592 km through the states of Jharkhand and West Bengal to the estaury of the River Hughli. It has a number of tributaries and subtributaries, such as Barakar, Konar, Guaia, Jamania, Usri, Bokaro, Haharo, Khadia and Bhera.

In some of the local languages of Jharkhand it is called Damuda; damu means sacred and da means water. The Damodar used to flow through Bengal on a direct west to east course and join the River Hughli near Kalna. It has changed its course and in its lower reaches most of the water flows into the Mundeswari river, which combines with other rivers and finally most of the Damodar water flows into the Rupnarayan River. The balance water flows through what is known as Damodar into the Hughli south of Kolkata.

The Barakar is the most important tributary of the Damodar. It originates near Padma in Hazaribagh district and flows through Jharkhand before meeting the Damodar near Dishergarh in West Bengal. The Damodar and the Barakar trifurcates the Chota Nagpur plateau. The rivers pass through hilly areas with great force, sweeping away whatever lies in their path. Two bridges on the Grand Trunk Road near Barhi in Hazaribagh district were torn down by the Barakar, the great stone bridge in 1913 and the subsequent iron bridge in 1946.

Ranchi About this sound pronunciation  (Hindi: राँची) is the capital city of the Indian state of Jharkhand.
