Ganga Dussehra 2021: Know About The Puja Vidhi And Shubh Muhurat
Ganga Dussehra or Gangavataran is a major Hindu festival. The auspicious day, observed in honour of Goddess Ganga, is on June 20. The day marks the descent of the sacred Ganga on Earth. Usually on Ganga Dussehra, devotees prefer to visit holy places on the banks of the Ganga like Prayagraj, Garhmukteshwar, Haridwar, Rishikesh and Varanasi to take a holy dip. Ganga Dussehra celebrations are famous in Varanasi and thousands of devotees participate in Ganga Aarti at the iconic Dasaswamedh Ghat. But this year due to the covid-linked guidelines in place, the celebrations are low-key.
According to the Hindu calendar 2021, Ganga Dussehra is in the month of Jyeshtha, during the Shukla Paksha or the Full Moon fortnight.
