About Gangasagar Mela

One of the most famous festival is the Gangasagar Mela in west bengal. It is held in the month of January-February, on the Ganga Sagar Island, at the mouth of the stream Hooghly in Bengal. It is gone to by a great many pioneers each year. A plunge in the water at this place, amid Gangasagar Mela, is thought to be to a great degree sacrosanct. Upon the arrival of Makar Sankranti, when the sun makes a progress to Capricorn from Sagittarius, it is said that the shower turns into a sacred wellspring of salvation.

The sacred waterway Ganges, in the wake of starting from Gangotri and going through fields of Rishikesh and Haridwar, achieves Bengal, where it is named Hooghly. In Bengal, this consecrated waterway converges with the ocean. After a dunk into the heavenly waterway here, individuals by and large visit Kapil Muni Temple arranged adjacent, to adore the icon cherished there, as a characteristic of regard.
