Ganga at Varanasi
The river Ganga gives life to and nurtures a vast population in cities and settlements along its banks. The cities by its banks alone are home to about twenty million people. The river provides water for irrigation, drinking, industry, power plants and is also an important means of navigation.

 

 

 

 

The Ganga Basin, the entire area that drains into Ganga, covers more than a quarter of India's total area. Over a third of India's population resides in the basin.

Ganga rises in the Himalayas, where it is known as Bhagirathi. Then the river cuts through the Himalayas, meets another stream called the Alaknanda at Devprayag. From there on the river takes the name Ganga.
