Pushkaralu a.k.a. Kumbhamela is the largest gathering of Hindus to take a holy dip (bath) in sacred rivers of India. The pushkaralu is a festival dedicated to worshipping of rivers. It is celebrated at shrines along the banks of 12 major sacred rivers in India, in form of ancestor worship, spiritual discourses, devotional music and cultural programmes. The celebration happens annually, once in 12 years along each river. Each river is associated with a zodiac sign, and the river for each year's festival is based on which sign Jupiter is in at the time. Due to regional variations, some of the zodiac signs are associated with multiple rivers. River Ganga Pushkara/ Kumbha mela starts when Jupiter transits over Mesha (Aries ) Rashi. When Jupiter transits over Simha rashi, Govavari pushkras will take place. In this website you will find information about Godavari Pushkaras from Nasik , Maharastra to Antarvedi, Andhrapradesh.
