The Sarasvati and Drisadvati River

Daljeet Singh


The Sarasvati nadi is represented by an insignificant drain today called Surasti. It takes its rise in the submontane plains in the south of Ad-Badri in Jagadhari tehsil of Ambala District. But its upper course which once joined the present dry bed of the Sarasvati is represented by a rivulet in the hills which joins the Somb at Ad-Badri. It is possible that anciently this upper course of Sarasvati and the Somb flowed southward through the Sarasvati dry bed before its headwaters were caught by Yamuna. The dry course of Sarasvati is irregularly represented till it reaches Mustafabad in the west of Jagadhari. Thence it takes a south- westerly course. Passing by Bhagwanpura, Kuruskhetra and Pehowa, the Sarasvati joined the Ghaggar near Shatrana in Patiala district of Punjab. At Arnaya near, the Sarasvati was joined by the Markanda nadi.
