A Timeless Heritage

A Timeless Heritage: Ganga is India's largest and most sacred river, playing an intimate and important role in the natural, historical, cultural, and spiritual heritage of the nation, representing its very identity.

If Ganga Lives, India Lives. If Ganga Dies, India Dies.

If Ganga Lives, India Lives. If Ganga Dies, India Dies: With threats to her free-flowing and pristine nature by excessive liquid and solid waste pollution in her waters, obstructions blocking her flow and large stretches of her riverbeds being dried up, Ganga struggles to survive.

Environmental Preservation for World Peace
