Ganga Dussehra 2017

Ganga Dussehra is a popular Hindu festival that falls in the month of June. It has a great importance in the history and mythology and is celebrated for 10 days. The Dussehra starts on Amavasya and ends on Shukla Dashmi, and according to the Gregorian calendar it falls in the month of June. The origin of this festival dates back to history and has a long story behind its virtue. It is said that Lord Bhagirath had requested holy river Ganga to come on earth and when finally the river came down to purify the planet, it was named as Ganga Dusshera which also means washing away of doshas/sins. According to mythology, if a human being takes a dip in the river for 10 days, all his sins get washed away. It is majorly celebrated in Varanasi but also has great value in Haridwar, Allahabad, Rishikesh and Garh-Mukteshwar. Offering prayers, taking a dip in the holy river, aarti and kirtans on the ghats of the river are the major activities done during this festival.

People from various corners of the world participate in this festival and do all the religious activities wholeheartedly. This year, Ganga Dussehra is estimated to fall on 3rd June 2017 and will be celebrated at the ghats of Varanasi with great enthusiasm and pride. The mesmerizing views of this festival can be experienced by taking a bus/flight/train to Varanasi.

The payment system was not possible with cards. It was a hassle to produce cash during checkout. Happy with the hospitality and room.

Recommended for the location - dead next to Gate #1 of Kashi Vishwanath temple. Ideal for a Mangal Aarti but that also means the hotel is in a no entry. You will have to haul your luggage for a bit ...
