Transcript of Ancient India geography

For centuries geography limited contact between the Indian subcontinent and the rest of the world. The Himalaya Mountains and the Hindu Kush separate India from Asia. Also with so many Monsoons, Earthquakes, and droughts it could make it either hard to survive or easier to survive. Basically India geography both helped and destroyed Ancient India's environmental development.
The Himilayas are important because they are what seperate India from Asia. The Himilayas elevation is 29,029 feet. Its area is 420,500 square miles. As many of you may know this, Mount Everest its his hieghst peak.Geologists have performed tests over years to prove that The Himalayas are geologically alive.This snow capped mountains were rightly named as Himalayas. This translates into the abode of snow.

Many rivers flowed through ancient India making the land very rich and fertile. One of the main rivers in ancient time was the Indus river in the north-west (what is now north-western India and Pakistan). It was on the banks of the Indus river that the earliest civilization in India to use writing, build large buildings. Another important river in ancient India was the Ganga. Settlements developed on the banks of this river from as early as prehistoric times.

A Monsoon is the seasonal wind of the Indian Ocean and southern Asia, blowing from the southwest in summer and from the northeast in winter. Monsoons had a big influence in indias climate change. Each year the Indus River would overflow during the summer monsoon season. This gave the farmers a fertile farm land and made it a great place for starting a civilization.

In India there is an abundance of natural resources.The largest cities and towns are situated along major river systems and coastal areas where people could control the movement of goods and raw materials along the trade routes. Built on enormous mud-built platforms high above the floodwaters, the cities had a vantage point from which to view the surrounding plains. Watch towers built along the city walls could provide lookouts to signal the approach of riverboats and caravans.
