List of Towns situated on the Banks of River

28-NOV-2015 10:12

    A river is a large, natural stream of flowing water. Rivers are found on every continent and on nearly every kind of land. Rivers have always been important to people. In prehistoric times, people settled along the banks of rivers, where they found fish to eat and water for drinking, cooking, and bathing.  Later, people learned that the fertile soil along rivers is good for growing crops.When towns and industries developed, the rushing water of rivers supplied power to operate machinery. Hundreds of factories operated mills powered by rivers. The Ganges is the greatest river on Asia's Indian subcontinent. It is sacred to the millions of followers of the Hindu religion. For thousands of years, Hindus have worshipped the river as a goddess, Ganga Ma (Mother Ganges). Hindus believe the river’s water purifies the soul and heals the body. Millions of people use the Ganges every day for bathing, drinking, and industry.
