The river Brahmaputra is known as Jamuna in ______.

A

Tibet

B

Bangladesh

C

Nepal

D

Bhutan

Answer

  • Below the Tista, the Brahmaputra splits into two distributary branches. 
  • The western branch, which contains the majority of the river's flow, continues due south as the Jamuna (Jomuna) to merge with the lower Ganga, called the Padma River (Pôdda).
  • It is the main distributary channel of the Brahmaputra River as it flows from India to Bangladesh. The Jamuna flows south and joins the Padma River (Pôdda), near Goalundo Ghat, before meeting the Meghna River near Chandpur. It then flows into the Bay of Bengal as the Meghna River.
