Ganga Pushkarams in 2011

Ganga Pushkaram 2011 begins on 8 May and ends on 19 May 2011. The 12-day Pushkaras are very auspicious for Ganga snan and other holy rituals. It is held at Gangotri, Gangasagar, Haridwar, Badrinath, Kedarnath, Varanasi (Kashi), and Allahabad (Sangam Prayag). Ganga Pushkaras starts when Pushkara Raju (the King of Pushkaras), Brihaspathi (Guru – Jupiter) enters into Ashwini Nakshatra Mesha Rashi. Ganga Pushkarams are the most auspicious among all Pushkarams.

There is Panchagraha kutami on May 11, 12, and 13, hence these 3 days are even more auspicious for Pushkara snana.

Pushkaram is a festival of rivers pertains to 12 important rivers in India which occurs once in 12 years for each river. The river for each year festival is based on the presence of Jupiter on which Zodiac sign by that time.

It is believed that Pushkarudu, also known as pushkar God who is powerful to make any river holy will travel with Jupiter, as Jupiter travels from one Zodiac sign to another Zodiac sign.
