Ganga Dussehra is a Hindu festival that is celebrated on the tenth day of the waxing moon in the month of Jyeshtha. This year, it will be observed on Tuesday, May 30, 2023. This day marks the descent of the Ganges River from heaven to earth, as it is believed that on this day, the river was brought to earth to purify and cleanse the souls of those who bathe in its waters. Devotees gather on the banks of the river to take a dip and offer prayers, and it is believed that doing so will wash away their sins and bring them good fortune. The festival is celebrated in various parts of India, particularly in areas along the Ganges River.
