Geographical position
Tamil Nadu covers an area of 130,058 km² (50,215 mi²),and is the eleventh largest state in India. The bordering states are Kerala to the west, Karnataka to the northwest and Andhra Pradesh to the north. To the east is the Bay of Bengal.

The southernmost tip of the Indian Peninsula is located in Tamil Nadu. At this point is the town of Kanyakumari which is the meeting point of the Arabian Sea, the Bay of Bengal, and the Indian Ocean.

Tamil Nadu is situated on the south eastern side of the Indian peninsula. It is bounded on the east by Bay of Bengal, in the south by the Indian ocean, in the west by the states of Kerala and Karnataka and in the North by the Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

The land mass of the state can be divided into two natural divisions,
(1) The Eastern coastal plain
(2) The hilly region along the North and the West

Along the whole length of the western part, the sea varying at a distance from, 80 to 160 km runs the range of the western Ghats, a steep and rugged mass averaging 1220 metres above the sea level and rising to 2440 metres at the highest point. The Palghat Gap about 25 km in width is the only marked break in the great mountain wall. To the south of this gap, the range is known as Anamalai (Elephant Hills)

On the east are the Palani Hills on which the famous hill station Kodaikanal is situated. The slopes of the western Ghats are covered with heavy ever green forests. The Nilgiris and the Anamalai are the hill groups with the maximum height. In the famous Ootacamund area of the Nilgiris district, is the highest peak Doddabetta, 2640 metres above the sea level. Ootacamund is known as the 'Queen of hill stations' in India. Almost every district has a hill-station or a sea-side resort.

The rivers of the state flow eastward from the western ghats and are entirely rain-fed. The perennial river fed by both the monsoons is the Cauvery which flows across Tamil Nadu cutting the state in to two halves. The perennial rivers are :- Palar, Cheyyar, Ponnaiyar Kaveri, Meyar, Bhavan, Amaravati, Vaigai, Chittar and Tamaraparni. The non-perennial rivers are the Vellur, Noyal, Suruli, Gundar, Vaipar, Valparai and Varshali. The 760 km long Cauveri is the largest river of the state.
