Akashiganga Tourism

Akashiganga Arunachal Pradesh

Akashiganga is an important pilgrimage center in the state of Arunachal Pradesh. The place is said to be associated with the legend of Sati. The place also offers a beautiful view of the Brahmaputra flowing far way.

The legend says that Lord Shankar was angry on seeing Sati's dead body. Thereafter, he started the dance of destruction. Lord Vishnu saw that the world could have been destroyed because of this dance. So he cut the body of Sati using his Sudarshan Chakra. The place where the head of Sati fell came to be known as Akashiganga.

The sacred Kund in Akashiganga is the chief attraction of the place. There is also a temple nearby. 100 meters down this path, one can observe a glowing object in the Kund. But as you move closer to it, the object is no more visible. Hordes of pilgrims come to this place to take a holy dip in the Kund so as to wash off their sins.
