Ganges River



The Ganges is a major river in the Indian subcontinent flowing east through the plains of northern India into Bangladesh. This river begins at the Gangotri Glacier in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, in the central Himalayas, and drains into the Bay of Bengal through its vast delta in the Sunderbans.

The Ganges has been held in high regard since time immemorial. The Ganges is mentioned in the Rig Veda, the earliest of the Hindu scriptures. According to the Hindus, the river Ganges is a sacred river and the Hindus believe that if one takes bath in this river, then all your sins will be forgiven and it helps in attaining salvation.

Some of the most important Hindu festivals and religious congregations are celebrated on the banks of the river Ganges, such as the Kumbh Mela and the Chhat Puja.
