The Yamuna is a river of north-central India. Rising in the Himalayas it flows south and south-east for 855 miles (1,376km) until it joins the Ganges at Allahabad. The Chambal river has its source in the Indore district and flows easterly for 550 miles (900km) forming the north-western boundary of Madhya Pradesh with Rajasthan. The Chambal converges with the Yamuna after Udi at Juhika (Uttar Pradesh). The Yamuna is considered a holy river and it and the bathing ghats which line its banks are a focal point for Hindu pilgrims.
