Description

The Ganga occupies an unrivalled position among the rivers of the world. No other river is so closely identified with a country as the Ganga is with India.

It is little wonder, therefore, that the river should have caught the imagination of the multitude of foreign visitors to the country through the ages. They have left fascinating accounts of the river scene ob served for over two millennia. The information provided by them is vast and varied, and we find detailed and delightful descriptions of customs and ceremonies, periodical fairs and festivals, flora and fauna and the picturesque spots and pilgrimage centers which they came across in the course of their travels along the Ganga.

Besides exhaustive extracts from the foreign travellers accounts included in this anthology, the book is also illustrated with some of the fascinating sketches of the river scene made by the landscape artists among them as they went up and down the river.
