The Ganga river or the Ganges itself is an epitome of religious significance in India. No other river is considered as sacred or is worshipped as extensively as the Ganga in India. The Hindus consider the waters of the Ganges to be holy and a number of Pujas (worship of deities) are conducted with the aide of this holy water.
The Ganges flows across India only and spreads to no other neighboring country. India is the cradle of some of the greatest civilizations of the world and the mighty Ganges has been a silent spectator to all. Now, its time for you to listen its silence.
