HISTORY

The river was known to Indians in the Vedic period as CHANDRABHAGA (Sanskrit : चंद्रभाग), also Asikni (Sanskrit : असिक्नी) or Iskmati (Sanskrit : इस्कामति) and as Acesines to the Ancient Greeks . In 325 BC, Alexander the Great allegedly founded the town of Alexandria on the Indus (present day Uch Sharif or Mithankot or Chacharan in Pakistan) at the confluence of the Indus and the combined stream of Punjab rivers (currently known as the Panjnad River ).
