States of India — Uttar Pradesh
Uttar Pradesh has been the most dominant state in Indian poltics and culture since Independence, producing over half of India’s prime ministers. This is partly because it’s the nation’s most populous — it has as many inhabitants as Brazil — and partly because of the central role the region plays in the religious lanscape of Hindus. The Ganges River, which forms the backbone of Uttar Pradesh, is the sacred river of Hinduism, and four of the religion’s seven holy towns are in the state, including Varanasi, the holiest of them all. Uttar Pradesh is also a places of major importance to Buddhists for it was at Sarnath, just outside Varanasi, that the Buddha first preached his message of the middle way. Most of Uttar Pradesh consists of the vast Ganges plain, an area of awesome flatness which often floods dramatically during the monsoon.
