Ganga Sagar Mela also known as `Ganga Sagar Yatra` or `Ganga Snan` is the annual gathering of Hindu pilgrims to take holy dip in River Ganga before it merges in the Bay of Bengal Sea during Makar Sankranti at Sagar Island or Sagardwip in West Bengal. Guys do you know the exact date of Ganga Sagar Mela and are there any plans to visit this Mela?

Gangasagar Yatra is popular all over the world for the holy bath. Yatra as mentioned in the Mahabharata where a learned sage explained the significance of taking dip at the confluence of Gangasagar to Bhisma. Since that time this place has been regarded as the one of the holiest places to take bath. Gangasagar Yatra especially falls on either 14th or 15th January every year in which the devotees perform their rituals and prayer and take a dip in the holy Ganges. The very concept behind this holy dip during Gangasagar Yatra is to cleanse and to purify the soul. Gangasagar Yatra is made to the place where the Ganges flows into the Bay of Bengal surrounded by Sagara Island and Diamond Harbour at the confluence of Ganges and Bay of Bengal.
