Sarasvati River

There are at least three Sarasvati Rivers: 1) now dry which used to come to the confluence of the Ganges and the Yamuna rivers at Allahabad 2) on the West coast of India (cf. presentation). Also called Ghagar River 3) Barati (Belonging to the Barats), and she was known as Brihad the Divine. They say her special place was on the Saras-vati River which happens to be the modern Sarus River in the Hittite/Phoenician land of Cilicia.
