    In India, there are several locations where the phenomenon of “superimposed rivers” can be observed. Superimposed rivers are formed when a river cuts through existing geological formations, such as mountains or plateaus, and continues to flow along a different course.

    One of the most well-known examples of a superimposed river in India is the Narmada River. The Narmada River flows through the Vindhya and Satpura mountain ranges, cutting through the hard rock formations over millions of years.

    Another example is the Tapti River, which also flows through the Satpura Range in central India. The Tapti River has superimposed its course over the ancient lava flows of the Deccan Traps.

    It’s important to note that the concept of superimposed rivers is not limited to a specific number or set of rivers in India. It is a geological process that can occur in various regions where rivers interact with the existing landscape. Therefore, the exact number of superimposed rivers in India is not fixed and can vary depending on the geological context.
