A significant festival of India, Ganga Dussehra, is observed to honor the Goddess Ganga every year. During the month of Jyeshtha, Ganga Dussehra is commemorated on Dashami Tithi (tenth day of Shukla Paksha). It falls in May or June, according to the Gregorian calendar.

We celebrate this day to commemorate Ganga’s descent onto Bhumi (Earth). Ganga Dussehra, which falls one day before Nirjala Ekadashi, may fall on the same day in some years as Nirjala Ekadashi. Here is more information on Ganga Dussehra 2021.

  • While standing in the Ganga, devotees read the Ganga Stotra and give alms according to their capacity to the poor to earn virtue and stay blessed.

  • Meditation is also performed by devotees on the banks of the Ganges.

The significance of Ganga Dussehra 2021

Bhagiratha’s ancestors are believed to have suffered curses due to the goddess Ganga’s descent to Earth on this day. Goddess Ganga resided in Lord Brahma’s Kamandal before coming to Earth. Her purity made Earth a sacred place, bringing it a little bit of heaven.

Take a holy dip at Prayagraj/Allahabad, Garhmukteshwar, Haridwar, Rishikesh, and Varanasi. Varanasi is famous for its Ganga Dussehra celebrations. Aarti and Ganga Snan are conducted at Dasaswamedh Ghat during this day. However, this year, there will be an alternative celebration due to the current pandemic.
