Started on 10th September, which will run till 25th September. During this we do Shradh and Pind Daan for the peace of the soul of our ancestors. Pind Daan is done in many places of the country, but there is some special place where performing Shradh gives a lot of merit. Today we will tell you about their places.
Gaya: Bodh Gaya is located in Bihar. Gaya is known for Pind Daan. Here Pind Daan is performed on the banks of the river Falgu, which is said to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. People take a dip in this holy river and Brahmins organize a pind daan reaction on any one of the 48 platforms available here.
Varanasi: Varanasi is situated on the banks of the most sacred rivers of India. Ganga and this city is considered one of the top pilgrimage places in India. In Kashi, people conduct havans for their dead ancestors on the banks of the river Ganges, where local Brahmin pundits begin the rituals.
Ayodhya: Pind Daan is also done in Ayodhya, the birth place of Lord Rama. Pind is one of the best places for donation. Here on the banks of the holy river Saryu is the Bhat Kund where Hindu Brahmins fulfill their obligation to perform rituals.
Jagannath Puri: Let us tell you that Pind Daan is also done in Jagannath Puri located in Orissa. Puri is situated on the banks of river Mahanadi and Bhargavi and hence, Sangam is considered sacred and ideal place of Pind Daan ceremony.
