Manwar River, also known as Manwar Manorama, rises in Gonda District
and flows in the easterly direction along the edge of Sikri forest to the district boundary.
It then forms the boundary of Basti District and Gonda District for a shorter period and joins the Chamnai, a small and sluggish stream in Basti. Manwar then bends to the south-east and a small tributary called Ramrekha joins it on its right bank. After passing through the two taluks of Nagar East and Nagar West, in Basti District, it joins the Kawana in Lalganj in
