The Saraswati flowed south-west beyond Saptagram, the Yamuna (this is distinct from the river of same name in northern India and several streams of the same name in eastern Bengal) flowed south-east, and the Bhagirathi proper flowing through the present Hooghly channel to Kolkata and then through Adi Ganga, past Kalighat, to the sea.

The saraswati is the river of knowledge.It could be experienced only in the mind and not seen physically.It has to be felt at every SANGAM.The confluence of Ganga and Yamuna has been inspiring many people to experience this river.A great gift of creation!
