The Indrayani River originates in Kurvande village near Lonavla, a hill station in the Sahyadri mountains of Maharashtra, India.[1] Fed by rain, it flows east from there to meet the Bhima river, through the Hindu pilgrimage centers of Dehu and Alandi. It follows a course mostly north of the city of Pune.[2] It is revered as a holy river and is associated with religious figures such as Sant Tukaram and Dnyaneshwar.

There is a hydroelectric dam called Valvan Dam on the Indrayani at Kamshet.[3]
