The river rises in the western Himalayas, in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, and after 2510 km long ends to form, the Brahmaputra river delta in the world's largest, Delta Ganga, in the Bay of Bengal.
For a long time it has been considered a holy river by Hindus, who have worshiped as the goddess Ganga in Hinduism. Historically, It has also been important: many of the former provincial or imperial capitals (as Pataliputra, Kannauj, Kara, Allahabad, Murshidabad and Calcutta) They have been placed on its banks. The Ganges and its tributaries drain a fertile basin 907 000 km² which supports a large concentration of population, with one of the highest densities in the world (in the year 2005, one of every twelve people in the world (a 8%) They lived in the region). The average depth of the river is 16 m and the maximum depth is 30 m.
The name "Ganges" comes from the Sanskrit word 'bargain', which means "going, will » (that is, it moves quickly).

The Ganges and Hinduism
In Hinduism, the Ganges river is personified in the form of a goddess: Maa Ganga (mother Ganges) or Ganga Devi (goddess Ganges). According to legend, This goddess was the stepmother of Kárttikeia (God of War, e hijo Shiva y Parvati).
Along the river are many sacred places for Hindus, including the cities of Varanasi and Haridwar. It is believed that every dive into the river serves to atone for a sin. further, deposit the ashes of a corpse in the Ganges prevents the cycle of rebirths the deceased. Hindus perform continuous pilgrimages to the river to bathe in it or meditate on its shores.
According to mythology, the god Brahma created the Ganges River from the foot sweat collected god Vishnu. Years later, a king named Sagara had 60 000 children. One day, King performed a ritual for God's kingdom in which participated a horse. The god Indra, jealous, He stole the horse and Sagar sent all his children around the earth to find the animal. Finally they found him in the underworld next to a penitent wise. Believing that the sage was the author of theft, they insulted and beat. The sage opened his eyes and looked at the sons of Sagar. His gaze burned them to death to 60 000 sons of King.
The souls of the children of Sagar wandered like ghosts until completely finished the ritual that his father had initiated. One of the descendants of Sagar, King Bhagīratha, He prayed to the god Brahma to allow the goddess Ganga to descend from heaven to play with its purifying waters the ashes of the deceased, so could ascend to Heaven. Brahma agreed and ordered the goddess came to the underworld. But Ganga feared the fall to Earth. Bhagiratha then asked the god Shiva deaden the river plunged.
Ganga fell on the clump of hair from the head of Shivá, but I think chaos in the whole area of the Himalayas, where the king was meditating Jahnu, who she was furious and swallowed up the river. Bhagīratha gods and prayed to the wise to drop the goddess. He did Jahnu. Bhagīratha then guided his car very fast (just bhagīn-ratha means 'quick wagon' in Sanskrit) the river through India to the ocean. Ganga there reached the edge and into the hell, where he liberated the unfortunate souls 60 000 sons of Sagara.
