Saraswati River found in Haryana in excavations by scientists and experts in May 2015. Saraswati River is one of the major rivers mentioned in all Vedas and Hindu texts. But many questioned have risen on the existence of the holy river.
Saraswati River – Antarvahini at Triveni Sangam
Saraswati River is considered as the ‘Antarvahini’ which flows at Triveni Sangam. The Rigveda denotes the Antarvahini nature of Saraswati River. Vajasaneya Samhita of Yajurveda and Brahmanas in the Vedas explain the existence of the River along with the details of its areas.
The Puranas like Brahmavaivarta Purana and Brahmanda Purana; epics like Mahabharata, Bhagavatha and Ramayana also have the reference of the Saraswati River.
Saraswati River as per Rigveda
The Nadistuti hymn in the Rigveda (10.75) mentions the Sarasvati between the Yamuna in the east and the Sutlej in the west, and later Vedic texts like Tandya and Jaiminiya Brahmanas as well as the Mahabharata mention that the Sarasvati dried up in a desert.
The goddess Saraswati was originally a personification of this river, but later developed an independent identity and gained meaning.
