    When a concentric ford with slowing meanders accrued the settling and rocks build up and generate new land. This new land causes the river or clause to break apart and creates branches, it is the reason of Delta Creating.

    Mahanadi rises in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh and flow in the eastward direction. Mahanadi is the major source of water in the Orissa State. Mahanadi forms its delta on the eastern fringe of the state of Orissa. This delta is one of the largest mangrove forests in peninsular India. The Delta covers an area of 9,500 sq km, and covers a coastline of 20 km also.

    The river has it tributaries, Tel and Hasdo that also flow in the state, and it’s a major source of electricity in Orissa. Mahanadi has a religious significance, but it the smaller sense. It has a lot of devotees in Cuttack.
