Maybe decades ago people settled around rivers as water is a basic necessity. Such towns have grown manifold now into cities. Here is the list. Read on & feel free to add more cities if you know:
11. Varanasi – Rivers Varuna, Assi & Ganga
The historical city of India, Varanasi is a three riverbank city. It is well known to be the city on Banks of River Ganga. However, many people forget that it is a city whose name comes from the two rivers located on its North and South end. By the North, it is Varuna river that meets Ganga at Adi Keshav Ghat. To the South, it is river Assi from whom the famous Assi ghat derives its name.
This makes Varanasi one of those unique cities surrounded by three rivers.
