It is believed that Ganga
nourishes the Varanasi civilization for long and it has been a great
religious importance in the Hindu society. It provides the people a
great sense of different identity and belonging. For the religious and
cultural beliefs of the people to the River Ganges, a festival of
Ganga Mahotsav is organized every year. People at Varanasi celebrate
Ganga Mahotsav continuously for 5 days at the banks of the River Gange.
