Ganga Page1

Himavan, the King of Mountains, had two daughters, Ganga and Uma. Ganga is a holy river. The angels took her to heaven. Their Brahma washed the feet of Hari with Ganga-jal. Skanda was born to God Siva. Ganga carried him in her arms.

Bhagiratha was an ancient King of our country. He prayed to river Ganga: "Please come down to earth. Then go to patala. Remove the sins of my ancestors, the Sagaras, by flowing over their ashes!" Ganga agreed to do so. But she came down from heaven with great force.
