Sindhu-Darshan- Festival has a lot of importance in Hinduism. Devotees from the different corners of the country as well as outside carry water in a pot (kamandal) from their respective states to gush it into the River- Sindhu every year. A horde of people throng together at a particular place on the banks of the River- Indus on the very first day of this festivity. They perform various rituals along with their distinctive prayers by chief priests and saint/pundits for granting reverence to River-Indus following by a traditional bonfire in the night on the River- Indus bank. They also take a holy dip in the River to wash away their sins and wrongdoings.
With a magnificent touch of multi-colored regional themes and rich beliefs of Ladakh, a splendid cultural program is flaunted for the holiday-makers on the second day of the sacred ceremony. Trippers involve themselves in numerous sightseeing tours and plan a marvellous religious trip (For customized Trips and Tours, Click on the link: Cultural Events) to nearby places at Leh & Ladak, J&K as well.
