Yamuna river

The Yamuna River, is one of the largest tributaries of the Ganges river and also one of the major rivers of North India, because its length is 1370 kilometers, and also because for the Hindus it is named as one of the seven sacred rivers of India, and is second in importance after the Ganges. The river is named for the goddess Lamuna, the sister of the Hindu God of death. In India the rivers have a very important role in everyday life as they are used for washing, washing the dishes, disposing of litter, purification of bodies , fun and ... You finish up in one of them when you die. The Yamuna river, although the waters are not are clear, are by far much more transparent than the Ganges, which in some sections seem more stagnant water than water. Although now not part of the safe water supply of the city, if they use it to irrigate a wide area. The most beautiful stretch of the river in my opinion, when it is passing by the edge where the Taj Mahal is located, especially when dawn takes the golden reflection of the sun and illuminates the "jewel" of India.

The river of the indian capital

One of the holy rivers of India not only passes near the Taj Mahal, also crosses the populous Indian capital. The passage of years has changed its course as before last by the Red Fort, now you should go to see a little beyond, and although it has No single cmodo to see if you can distinguish under the Old Iron Bridge, one of those bridges over the passing trainloads of travelers every day of the year.

El río de la capital india

Uno de los ríos sagrados de India no pasa solamente junto al Taj Mahal, también cruza la populosa capital india.

El paso de los años ha cambiado su curso y cuando antes pasada junto al fuerte rojo, ahora para verlo hay que ir un poco más allá, y aunque no tiene ningún cómodo para verlo si se puede distinguir bajo el Old Iron Bridge, uno de esos puentes sobre los que pasan trenes cargados de viajeros cada día del año.
