Significance of Godavari Anthya Pushkaralu

Why only Godavari River has Anthya Pushkaralu? According to Avadhani Mohana Sharma (President of Manthani Veda Vignana Parishad & Chairman of Endowment Lands Protection Committee), Lord Sri Ramachandra walked through the entire Godavari River during his exile, Godavari River attained the sanctity that no other river had. So, we have the rituals of both – Aadi Pushkaralu and Anthya Pushkaralu for Godavari River.

Those who missed out of Godavari Pushkaralu of 2015 can perform Punya Snana in Anthya Pushkaralu.
