No...

The 5 rivers are:
Sutlej
Beas
Ravi
Chenab
Jhelum

They are located in Pakistan and India; the Punjab region is shared between the two countries.

... The Ganges is a few hundred miles away...

Anything else you want to ask? :smile:

Modern Bhangra is actually a more recent dance that originated in Punjab in the mid-late 20th century with influences from an older tradition of bhangra. :bhangra:

There is also a traditional folk dance that women take part in called Giddha.

There are many other styles and subforms...

But presently, yes bhangra is the most common and most popular dance form.

Is gold considered very lucky in Punjabi culture or mythology?
All the people I know with Punjabi heritage have eye-wateringly high gold investments- jewellery and bullion.
