Union Minister takes dip in holy Ganges, tweets photo

Union Minister Smriti Irani took a holy dip in the river Ganges as part of the ongoing Kumbh Mela congregation.

She herself shared her pic while taking a dip in the holy river.

The Kumbh Mela, considered largest congregation of humans in the planet, began today with a Shahi Snan at Prayagraj in Uttar Pradesh.

The Minister tweeted a picture of her holy dip, with the caption “Har Har Gange”.

She was among lakhs of pilgrims who gathered at the crack of dawn at the sacred Sangam for a ritual dip in the sacred rivers marking the
beginning of the Kumbh Mela.

It may be mentioned that the Sangam is the confluence of the Ganga, Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati rivers in Prayagraj.

Makar Sankranti, which marks the beginning of the festival, is one of the sacred bathing days of the event.

About 12 crore people are expected to visit the Kumbh between now and Maha Shivratri on March 4, when the Mela will come to a close, for a holy dip at the Sangam.
