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.
