The Kadhu Nullah

The Kadhu Nullah is the largest tributary of the Gomti, that enters the district of Sultanpur from district Raebareli. After a course of 37 km it discharges into the Gomti. It is a combination of two streams. Between the parganas of Jagdishpur and Gaura Jamo runs a large drainage channel known as the Naiya (a term applied to any rain stream). Naiya is almost dry in the cold weather, but is torrent during rainy season. At Tanda in Jagdishpur, it is reinforced by another large water course which rises in Parwezpur to the north and then forms a combined stream known as the Kandu or Kadhu. In the southeast of the Jagdishpur it is joined by the another drainage channel serving the villages in the north. In the extream northeast of the Gaura Jamon a third deep drainage channel. This channel runs irregularly from near Jamo and carries off the surplus from that village and the neighbourhood. This again joins the mainstream. The banks are broken by ravines, and here and there is a small tract of jungle. The Kadhu Nullah then continues eastward through pargana Musafirkhana, and joins the Gomti at Chandipur. There is considerable amount of water during the rainy season, but during other periods it is dry. Flooding is not reported till this time from this course.
