River Ganga is worshipped and venerated as Goddess in Hindu religion. In Hinduism there are many myths and stories about the descent of River Ganga on Earth. According to Hindu mythology Bhagirath a descendant of King Sagara brought River Ganges on the Earth. It is said that Bhagirath led the way and river Ganga followed him reaching the spot where lay the ashes of his ancestors. Finally the water of River Ganga liberated the souls of Bhagirath s ancestors. For ages River Ganga has been at the center of the economic social cultural and religious life of the people especially in North India.
