Gomati River

also called  Gumti 
 tributary of the Ganges (Ganga) River (Ganges River), central Uttar Pradesh state, northern India.

Below this point it flows generally southeastward for some 500 miles (800 km), receiving its only major tributary, the right-bank Sai River, near Jaunpur and emptying into the Ganges near Saidpur. It drains a basin of about 7,240 square miles (18,750 square km).
