Overview

GangaSagar Yatra with Half Day Kolkata Tour –02 Days

GangaSagar: 

Gangasagar Tour Fair is the second biggest congregation of Hindu pilgrims after the Kumbha Mela. The Gangasagar Mela is observed annually and only on Sagardwip (Sagar Island). Every year during Makar Sankranti pilgrims from all over the country come to take a holy dip at the confluence of the river Ganges and Bay of Bengal, followed by offering prayers at the Kapil Muni Temple. This temple is immersed in legendary tales and is highly revered among devotees.

Sagar Island or Gangasagar is an island in the Ganges delta, lying on the continental shelf of Bay of Bengal about 100 kms south of Kolkata. Gangasagar is a charming tourist destination, which attracts both pilgrims and adventure lovers. Located on an island in the Sundarbans, Gangasagar offers the charms of an un-spoilt beach on the estuary of the river Ganges. Gangasagar offers acres of silver sand and clear blue sky, and the calm sea for visitors who would like to spend their weekend in tranquillity.

This island has acres of dazzling silver sand and clear blue sky, Gangasagar is still relatively unknown and thus, unexploited. Gangasagar also finds itself in the poetry of Rabindranath Tagore. The lighthouse at Gangasagar has great views of this beach and is perfect for watching the sunrise and sunset.
