Abstract

The Saraswatī was a highly venerated river in the times it watered the vast expanse of the land known as Saptasindhav—the land of seven rivers (Rigved, 8.24.27) namely Saraswatī, Parushnī, Vipāsh, Asiknī, Vitastā, Sindhu and Kumbhā. Presently known as the Ghagghar, the Beās, the Rāvi, the Chenāb, the Jhelam, the Indus and the Kābul rivers respectively, these seven rivers held sway over the larger part of northwestern India.
