Did anyone know that Gangasagar Mela is the second biggest religious gathering after Kumbh Mela? I am amazed to found out that this month long mela is to celebrate the festival of Makar Sankranti. I really want to know more about the myths and facts related to it.

Devotees from every corner of the nation come to the Gangasagar mela each year and it is perhaps the largest gathering of human beings at one place. There are no rules or guidelines for visiting this holy fair. People of all castes and social standings freely take dips at the confluence of river Ganga and the Bay of Bengal.
