New Delhi: To locate the mythological Saraswati River more research is needed, Uma Bharti, Union Water Resources Minister said today.

While speaking to a group of scientists, archaeological and researchers, she said that an integrated study should be carried out for the purpose with information like historical and archaeological records, hydro-geological, sedimentological, drilling and geo-chronological data, a press release said.

She added that formation of a core group of scientists, archaeologists and research scholars to fulfil the task would be done.

 

Earlier a detailed presentation to the Minister, on the existence of "extinct" Saraswati, was made by a group of scientists from Regional Remote Sensing Centre, Department of Space, Jodhpur.

Necessitating a fresh look through latest available technology, the course of the river and reasons for its disappearance have been debated for a long time.

The mythological Saraswati has been linked to the Himalayan rivers like Yamuna in the east and Sutlej in the west.

Radiometric ages of river sediment suggest that the age of Saraswati River may be as old as 28,000 years. The river was believed to have flourished during 8,000 to 5,000 BC.
