The trend of celebrating the Ganga Mahotsav in the Holy city of India, Varanasi tends to keep the importance of the Varanasi as a cultural religious and traditional capital of the India. At this occasion pilgrims celebrate the event by performing an Indian classical style music and dance. It provides an immense chance for tourists to see the real presentation of the Indian classical dance and music. Many of the great personalities of India have participated and performed their enchanting performances at the Ganga Mahotsav such as Ustad Bismillah Khan, Bal Murli Krishnan, Vilayat Khan, Pundit Chhanulal Misra, Birju Maharaj, Girija Devi, Sujat Khan, Bhimsen Joshi, Amjad Ali Khan, Zila Khan and Zakir Hussein. This festival attracts pilgrims and tourists from all the corners of the world.

Is this Ganga Mahotsav celebrated in West Bengal? This is because River Ganga also flows through Bengal.
