There are a lot of exciting things that Northern India offers to you. From that list there is one festival which you must experience to bring prosperity in your life, The Sindhu Darshan Festival. Sindhu means River Indus and Darshan Means to witness. As our beloved country is named under the River Indus, this festival is a tribute to River Indus. Sindhu Darshan festival is one the most vibrant and colourful festivals in Northern India. This festival is being celebrated for a stretch of 3 days and attracts many foreign tourists.
This festival is commemorated to Indus (Sindhu) river which is a symbol of communal Harmony in India. People believe that a glimpse of River Sindhu is supposed to bring fortune and considered as highly beneficial for that person. So people from different corner of the world visit Ladakh to witness how majestically the river is flowing in that region. It is also dedicated to our soldiers who stands at borders no matter how harsh the weather
People in Ladakh at their most colorful clothes pay their homage to River Sindhu by dipping into its water and pray for her blessings and they treat the river as their mother. People from different parts of the country bring water from their own pot and immerse that water into the holy river.
This festival is also a way to offer water to the soul of the dead people because it is an old belief that offering water would release their souls permanently from the worldly ties. On these days, a prayer is organized on the bank of river by 50 lamas who pray for the prosperity of the whole country.
