Bounded by the Karnataka State in the north and east, Kannur district in the south and the Arabian Sea in the west, Kasaragod, also spelt as Kasaragod(e)/ *godu, is the northern-most district of Kerala. The district headquarters is also named Kasaragod. The land comprising undulating hills intercepted with twelve rivers rises from the densely populated coastal region in the west to the forest-covered Western Ghats range in the east.
There are 12 rivers in this district. Out of which the longest is Chandragiri whose length is 105 km originating from Pattimala in Coorg. It embraces the sea at Thalangara, near Kasargod. It is assumed that the name of the river Chandragiri has taken from the name of the place of its source Chandragupta Vasti. This is the place where the great Maurya emperor Chandragupta is believed to have spent his last days as a sage.
