About River Sindhu

River Sindhu is the largest of the Sapta Sindhu (seven sacred rivers) mentioned in the Rig Veda. It flows through some areas in Jammu and Kashmir in India.

The Indus River, Sindhu River, is one of the main rivers of the Indo-Gangetic Plain in the Indian subcontinent. It flows through China (western Tibet), India, and Pakistan. Originating in the Tibetan Plateau in the vicinity of Lake Manasarovar, the river runs a course through the Ladakh region of India towards Gilgit-Baltistan, and then flows in a southerly direction along the entire length of Pakistan to merge into the Arabian Sea near the port city of Karachi in Sindh. The Indus is the longest river of Pakistan.

The river has historically been important to many cultures of the region. The 3rd millennium BC saw the rise of a major urban civilization of the Bronze Age. During the 2nd millennium BC, the Punjab region was mentioned in the Rigveda hymns as Sapta Sindhu and in the Avesta religious texts as Hapta Hindu (both terms meaning “seven rivers”). Early historical kingdoms that arose in the Indus Valley include Gandhāra, and the Ror dynasty of Sauvīra. The Indus River came into the knowledge of the West early in the classical period, when King Darius of Persia sent his Greek subject Scylax of Caryanda to explore the river, c. 515 BC.
