From Punjabi پنجاب (Paṉjāb) or ਪੰਜਾਬ (Pañjāb) both meaning "land of five waters"; ultimately from Persian پنج (panj) "five" combined with آب (âb) "water". The name refers to the five rivers that flow through the region (Jhelum, Ravi, Sutlej, Chenab, and Beas). The Punjab is a region, Pakistani province, and Indian state located in northern India.
