Ever wondered if your city lies on a river bank?

Rivers in general embody many different values to different people. For example, rivers symbolize connections, since they touch everyone, and everybody in principle lives downstream. Rivers also symbolize human health, since fresh water from rivers is essential to our communities and ourselves. Another value embodied in a river is that of habitat, highlighting the importance of protecting freshwater ecosystems for fish and wildlife both in the river itself, and along its banks.

Hindus have always believed that the water of the Ganges River has purifying powers. Although millions of people bathe in the river regularly, it does not usually spread cholera, typhoid, or other water-borne diseases. Scientists have found that unique bacteriophages viruses that destroy bacteria kill germs in the water of the Ganges.

In addition, the Ganges holds up to 25 times more dissolved oxygen than any other river in the world. The oxygen helps prevent putrefaction (rotting) of organic matter in the river. Scientists do not know why the river retains so much oxygen. After learning about these important and interesting facts about rivers it becomes necessary to increase our knowledge about the cities which lie besides rivers. So, read this articles to know about the list of Indian cities on rivers.
