Indian cities located on river banks-Most of the cities in India located on the bank of the river because of various advantages. Cities near water are for good Agriculture, good transportation, good for animal farming.

Cities with access to water trading routes could deliver great amounts of goods for trade with other coastal cities, which means more money and trade goods for both settlements, and allowed for cultural mixing.
Access to water is a huge thing, it is needed for drinking, transport, irrigation, and as technology developed, many industrial processes also needed water.
It helps the population of coastal cities to grow and expand faster settlements. While inland cities could only rely on agriculture, foraging, and hunting, coastal cities also had access to the flora and fauna that lived on the water bodies next to them.

Most of the oldest cities in the world developed around rivers because they played a major role in sustaining the city itself. Rivers provide water, support natural processes – like flood prevention – and provide habitats for plants and animals.

These are important to the city, plants, for example, have a cooling effect, helping to lower surface and air temperatures by providing shade and releasing moisture into the air.

Riverbanks and flood plains have also become ideal locations for settlements and urban agriculture.
