  • A holy river in South India. Famous sacred places like Śrīraṅga and Kumbhakoṇa are on its banks. The Devī of the river lives in Varuṇa's assembly worshipping him. [Sabhā Parva, Chapter 9, Verse 20]. The Skanda Purāṇa has the following story as to how Kāverī came down to earth: Once Agastya propitiated Śiva at Kailāsa and sought the boon of some water for him to found a sacred place on earth. At the same time Kāverī also was worshipping Śiva. Śiva filled Agastya's bowl with Kāverī water. Agastya, on his way back from Kailāsa cursed the Rākṣasa called Krauñca and kicked the Vindhya mountain down. (See under Agastya). After overcoming various difficulties Agastya at last reached South India. He sat in meditation with the bowl of Kāverī water before him, and then, at the request of Indra, Gaṇapati, in the guise of a crow came and sat on the brink of the bowl and upset it. The water in the bowl flowed as a river, and that river is the present Kāverī. [Asurakāṇḍa, Skanda Purāṇa].
