From Monday holy month of sawan is starting. Sawan means Rainy season. Since older time when agriculture was main activity people used to have much time to do pilgrimages. In this month an annual pilgrimage of devotees of Siva, fetch holy waters of Ganges River. Millions of participants gather sacred water from the Ganga and carry it across hundreds of miles to dispense as offerings in their local Siva temples. the whole journey if full of fun activities and enjoyment. As it require 8-10 days I would not be part of it. I am adding one image from google search image can be seen on google by typing "kawad yatra"
