The Indus River, Pakistan


The mighty Indus river called Sindhu in  Sanskrit is one of the longest rivers in  Asia.

It flows through China, India and Pakistan. Originating in the Tibetan plateau in the vicinity of the Manasarovar lake 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 open into the  Arabian Sea near the port city of Karachi in Pakistan. It 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 -the Indus valley civilization . During the 2nd millennium BC, the Punjab region was mentioned in the hymns of the Rigveda of Hindus as as Sapta Sindhu (“seven rivers”). Early historical kingdoms that arose in the Indus Valley include the  Gandhara, and Ror dynasty of Sauvira.

The Indus River provides key water resources for Pakistan’s economy– especially the breadbasket of the Punjab province of Pakistan.
