The Mohana River (also called Mohani River/Mohane River) flows through the Hazaribagh, Chatra and Gaya districts in the Indian states of Jharkhand and Bihar.


The Mohana originates on Korambe Pahar on the Hazaribagh plateau near Bendi village, 19.3 kilometres (12.0 mi) from Hazaribagh[1][2][3] It drains the upper part of the plateau.[3]The western portion of the Hazaribagh plateau constitutes a broad watershed between the Damodar drainage on the south and the Lilajan (also called Niranjana) and Mohana rivers on the north.[1]

The Mohana then runs north past Itkhori, descends into the Gaya Plains, and crosses the Grand Trunk Road / NH 2 at the foot of the Danua pass. Near Itkhori it intersects the Chatra-Chauparan Road with its wide and sandy channel. 3.2 kilometres (2.0 mi) below Bodh Gaya it unites with the Lilajan (Niranjana) to form the Falgu.[3][4] When it goes past the Barabar Hills, it again takes the name of Mohana, and divides into two branches.[4]


In the long range of hills south of the border of Chatra town.[5][6]
