Son River of central India is the largest of the Ganges' southern tributaries.

The Son originates near Amarkantak in Madhya Pradesh, just east of the headwater of the Narmada River, and flows north-northwest through Madhya Pradesh state before turning sharply eastward where it encounters the southwest-northeast-running Kaimur Range.

Length of this river is 784 km and it joins the Ganga river before reaching Patna.
