Ganga Dussehra is a festival that takes place in the month of June for a period of ten days. During this festival, devotees worship the holy river Ganga whom they refer both as a Goddess and as a mother. Places, like Prayag, Varanasi, Haridwar, Rishikesh, Garh-Mukteshwar etc, where the Ganga flows are considered as sacred places. People flock to Varanasi and its many ghats that touch the water of Ganga on the western bank. They worship the water, dip in it and take the holy clay with themselves. Aratis are performed in Haridwar at twilight and hundreds of devotees meditate and sing bhajans on the banks of the holy river. Have you ever taken part in the Ganga Dussehra festival?
