The Ganges delta is one of the largest deltas in the world. The rivers Ganges and Brahmaputra flow into the delta from the northwest and the north. The landforms of the Bengal lowland, including the Ganges or Bengal delta and its surrounding region, consist of Pleistocene uplands and alluvial lowlands. The Ganges delta is distributed over Bangladesh and a major part of West Bengal (India).
