The river seems to have derived its name from Ganga and Venu, a king mentioned in the Puranas, or more probably the king Ben or Bele. He ruled from Singorgarh fort in Damoh.

It is the most important river of the District. It rises from the hill (21 55N; 79 34E) above Pratabpur in Seoni. Its early course is circuitous which finally, takes a southerly direction and forms the common boundary of Seoni and Balaghat from Padriganj to Gurera rock, a distance of 32 km., its bed is more or less rocky and uneven. Beyond this it enters the western plain of the District. The Tahsil boundary between Balaghat and Wara-Seoni is marked by this river.

The river flows past the District town and crosses the southem boundary at Borinda.

The length of the river in the District is 98 km. and the average width about 250 meters. The bed is generally a wide stretch of sand in the plains but rocks come up at places. The Wainganga, after joining the Wardha and the Penganga is known as the Pranhita which tributes the Godawari.
