What is the longest river in India?

Answer

The Ganges River, or Ganga, is the longest river in India. It flows for 1,560 miles, or 2,510 kilometers. The Ganges River is the holiest river in Hinduism.

In addition to its religious importance, the Ganges River provides many tangible benefits to India. The fertile soil of the Ganges Basin is a rich cropland, and the waters of the Ganges irrigate farms along its length. The Ganges also drives a huge amount of tourists to the area for religious rituals and festivals. People bathe in the river for religious cleansing, though some have been hesitant to do so since the river was named one of the world's most polluted.
