Choti Saryu or Tamasa River is a river in India[1] that starts in Ambedkar Nagar, Faizabad division, Uttar Pradesh, and passes through Mau and joins another river in Phephna. The joint stream joins the Ganga at Anjorpur. It is a perennial river – in the dry season only sluggish black water remains, but in the rainy season it can cause floods such as the one in 2005.[2]

It should not be confused with the Tamsa River which originates in the Kaimur Range in Madhya Pradesh and joins the Ganga at Sirsa.
