Besides economic importance, the Yamnua River plays a major role in Hindu religion and spiritualism. The river is also worshiped at various other points along its course, and thousands of Hindu temples and shrines are built along its banks. The froth floating on the surface of the river is said to be a result of detergents containing high phosphate content.

The waters of this river also help in satisfying the domestic water needs of major cities and towns along and beyond its banks, including Delhi, Agra, and Mathura.
