Bath of faith....

For millions of Hindus, the river Ganga is the physical expression of goddess Ganga and bathing in her water is both spiritual ritual and necessary ablution. It is believed that a holy dip in the Ganga washed away all the sins of life. A lot of Hindus from the different parts of India come here regularly on a pilgrimage throughout the year.
