About Ganga Sagar Mela :
Ganga is regarded as the holiest river in the Hindu mythology. The river originates in Gangotri and marks an end of her journey in Sagar Island where it merges with the Bay of Bengal. There is a myth which goes around that if one bathes in the Ganga here, he/she would be cleansed of all his/her sins. The number of tourists has been increasing year after year; thus, the festival is such a grand affair when thousands of devotees from all races, backgrounds, cultures and nationalities take a dip in the holy waters and worship Lord Surya.
The tourists after taking a dip also visit the temple of Kapil Muni, a well-known sage of the Hindu mythology. The fair takes place on the day of Makar Sankranti which is celebrated every year on either the 14th or the 15th of January.
A place of exceptional beauty and religious significance, Sagardwip is a beautiful island, just off the Bengal coast. It is the point where the river Ganga meets the Bay of Bengal, and thus it has religious connotations. Sagardwip has some great beaches for rejuvenation and relaxation and is also a haven for trekkers. It is known throughout the world for hosting the Ganga Sagar Mela in January when thousands of devotees take a dip in the Ganga in Sagardwip.
