Harike Barrage is built upon the confluence of the great rivers Satluj and Beas in Punjab. 1.4 kms long barrage is an extraordinary example of modern engineering.
Harike Barrage is the start of India’s greatest water canal, Indira Gandhi Canal. The great canal is carries water for almost 640 kms which helps the land of Punjab and northern western Rajasthan. Indira Gandhi Canal was completed in 1987.
The barrage is an example of India’s priority over water distribution. Punjab must be thankful for the canal which brought a green revolution here.
