The Arabian Sea

The Arabian Sea forming much of India's Southwestern border is a lifeline of the coastal hamlets. It is also an important route of water transportaion within India and serves as the base of the fishing industry on the west-coast. In Indian folklore, it is referred to as Daria, Sindhu Sagar, and Arabbi Samudra.

It was known as the Sindhu Sagar to Indians in the Vedic period of their history.

The Indus River, also known as the Sindhu river, is the major considerable river flowing directly into this sea. However, throughout Indian west-coast numerous smaller rivers such as Narmada, Tapti, Sharavati and Kali join the Arabian sea.

Cities on the coast include Mumbai, Mangalore (in India), and Karachi (in Pakistan). Famous beaches in India on the coast of Arabian sea include beaches of Goa,Juhu Beach, and Kovalam beach (in Kerala).
