Sarasvati River holds the magnificent history and importance as it is one of the river which is mentioned in highly sacred ancient scripture - Rigveda and Vedic religion and said to be the Lupt Nadi Gupt Nadi – Secret River now. Not only Sarasvati is mentioned separately in Rigveda but it is stated in various Hindu epics that the Sarasvati River was dried up around 800 years ago and it became a myth now that Sarasvati is flowing underground. However, the ISRO of Ahmedabad had claimed a year ago that the Sarasvati River is not a myth it is a river which flows seasonally and it holds a tremendous history according to the Hindu epics. Sarasvati River is one of the tributary of the Alaknanda River in badrinath and the river originates from Rajasthan then passing through Siddhpur and Patan and flowing in Rann of Kutch and meeting the Ocean.

A high Indian research claimed that the Sarasvati River was originating from Tibbat from Himalaya range passing through Kailash Mansarovar then mana pas and after that the River entered in India by merging with The Ganga River. The scientist claimed anyhow that the disappearing of the River is due to the Himalaya range as it is claimed that every year there is an increase of 7 cm in range due to high snowfall and the changes in the environmental conditions and it results in separating the tributaries of the River. Archaeological evidence suggests that there was a steady shift in the positions of the settlements, until 1800BC, when settlements start appearing towards the North-East, where the Yamuna and the Ganga flow and eventually this led to lesser and lesser water flowing towards the Sarasvati’s original delta along the coast of Gujarat - Southern Pakistan, until eventually, the river ended in a marshland and we now call the Rann of Kutch.The Jaisalmer dessert where the water is being found after every 50 to 60 metres is claimed that it is the water from Sarasvati River which is flowing underground. It is being observed from years in Jaisalmer that in spite of less rainfall the well never gets dried up and the well remains filled with water every year. The amount of tritium in the water of Jaisalmer was found to be zero and it was claimed by the scientists that it belongs to Sarasvati River. During the earthquake in 2001 in Kutch there was a flowing section being observed and after the research it was found that the water was 8000 years old and claimed to be the water of Goddess Sarasvati.

The Triveni Sangam is the meet of the three most sacred Rivers of Ganga, Yamuna and Sarasvati which is located in Prayagraj –Allahabad, Uttarpradesh where Kumbh Mela is held after every 12 years where millions of devotee and tourist across the world participates. The Sarasvati River is being commended in the Rigveda that the Sarasvati River is the greatest of the mothers, greatest of the rivers and greatest of goddesses. According to Mahabharata the Sarasvati River was dried up into dessert and joined the sea. As per Hindu epics it mentioned that Balarama made a journey in Mahabharata through a bank of Sarasvati from Dwarka to Mathura.

Today it is known that Sarasvati River is flowing underworld and emerging in the some of the places. It is believed that the diversion of the river water due to the separate tributary it led disconnections between the lakes and pools and at last it dried up. Along with Hiranya and Kapila in Somnath the third Sarasvati river merges and form Triveni Sangam here, also famous as Lord Shree Krishna Nija Dham or Prasthan Tirth. Today the Sarasvati River is known to be Ghaggar- Hakra River or the dried up part of it. The river is the Trans boundary to India as well as to Pakistan. The Ghaggar- Hakra River is today only the seasonal river as it flows only during monsoon.

It is been stated by archaeologist that the river length is around 4000 kilometres where in India it flows about 3000 kilometres and rest of it is flowing in Pakistan. India is still searching the real evidence of drying up and the existence of it via various research channel and institutes.
