India's Great Rivers

First Online: June 02, 2005
Page Last Updated: January 04, 2018

India is sometimes referred to as the "Land of Rivers". The multitude of tributaries and the close binding of Indian civilization and culture to the local rivers is the reason for this characterization. Travel anywhere in India and one is overcome by how much the rivers influence the economy and local cultures. Indeed, Indians have worshipped rivers as a form of Mother Goddess from ancient times.
