Location : Haryana




Yamuna, also called as Jamuna, originates from the Bundar Poonch glaciers in district Uttarkashi . It rises from Jamunotri, in the Himalayas. River Tons, which flows along the boundary of Himachal Pradesh , west of district Tehri Garhwal joins Yamuna River at Kalsi and thereafter joins the plains. From Kalsi, the river flows along the boundary of Himachal Pradesh .

Yamuna flows in a southerly direction through the Himalayan foothills and onto the northern Indian plain, along the Uttar Pradesh-Haryana State border. The Eastern and Western Yamuna canals are fed from the river at that point.

Near Mathura it turns southeastward and passes Agra , Firozabad, and Etawah. Below Etawah it receives a number of southern tributaries, the largest of which are the Chambal, the Sindh, the Betwa, and the Ken. Near Allahabad , after a course of about 855 miles (1,376 km), the Yamuna joins the Ganges River; their confluence is a sacred place to Hindus.
