Gangasagar Fair

Gangasagar Mela or also called Gangasagar fair is the largest mela in West Bengal and the fair is held in the place where the river Ganga and the Bay of Bengal form a connection together. Thus the name called Gangasagar Mela came into picture.
The river Ganga originates from Gangotri glacier. This lies in the snow clad Himalayas. The Ganga descends down the mountains. It then reaches the plains at Haridwar. After that it flows through piligrimage places like Benaras and Prayag after which it goes to the Bay of Bengal.
