About Kanwar Yatra:
The ‘Kanwar Yatra’ is an annual pilgrimage for Lord Shiva’s devotees. The Kanwariyas visit places like Haridwar, Gaumukh and Gangotri in Uttarakhand and Sultanganj in Bihar to fetch the holy water of River Ganga and then worship the God with the same water. Considering that Kanwar Yatra did not take place for the last two years, the administration in various areas has been adopting all the necessary measures to avoid any untoward incidents during the holy pilgrimage.
A large number of Shiva devotees are reaching Haridwar to collect water from the Ganges for the ‘Jalabhishek’ of Lord Shiva to be held on July 26. Sawan not only marks the onset of monsoon but also is a kickstart to a season of festivals from Ganesh Chaturthi, Rakshabandhan, Janmashthi etc.
