Banks of Ajay River, Bihar
Munger Hills which is of 300 meters is the origin place of Ajay River in Bihar, India. The Ajay River flows through the Deoghar district in Jharkhand, joining with the Pathra and Jainti (Jayanti) rivers and proceeds on its journey through Dumka district to West Bengal. It flows down the plateau edge, which marks the boundaries between Bankura and Birbhum districts in West Bengal where it meets the Bhagirathi River at Katwa in Murshidabad. In recent times there has been exploration of the remains of an ancient civilization similar to that of the Indus Valley Civilization at Pandu Rajar Dhibi in the lower Ajay valley.

The total catchment area of the Ajay River is 6,000 sq km and the important tributaries of this river are Pathro and Jayanti in Jharkhand, and Tumuni and Kunur in Bardhaman district of West Bengal. The Ajay Valley from where the Ajay River flows was densely forested with sal, piyasal, and the palas trees until the mining activities cleared away the forests of this valley. In the Ajay River, there has been at least 14 floods recorded uptill now in the 20th century and the lower reaches of the river is guarded to prevent flooding in the region.
