Arunachal Pradesh: Famous ‘Parshuram Kund Mela’ begins

Parshuram Kund Mela started in North-Eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh. Parshuram Kund, a Hindu pilgrimage centre is situated on the Brahmaputra plateau in the lower reaches of the Lohit River.

Devotees across the country visit the sacred place to take a holy dip in the Kund on the occasion of Makar Sankranti. More than 12,000 footfalls of pilgrims are recorded so far who have come to the Mela this year.

The legendary beheading of his mother by Lord Parshuram and eventual penance followed by taking a bath in the so-called Brahma Kund, has added religious significance to this place.
