What is Kanwar Yatra?

Kanwar Yatra is an annual pilgrimage of devotees of Shiva, known as Kanvarias or Bhole (meaning innocent), to Hindu pilgrimage places of Haridwar, Gaumukh and Gangotri in Uttarakhand and Sultanganj in Bihar to fetch holy water from Ganges River. Millions of pilgrims carry sacred water in earthen pots suspended on either side of a pole (called kanwar) on their shoulders for hundreds of miles to offer it to Shiva temples in their localities or specific temples such as Pura Mahadeva and Augharnath temple in Meerut, Kashi Vishwanath in Varanasi or Baidyanath in Deoghar.

The Kanwar Yatra takes place during the Hindu month of Shravan (July-August) which is considered auspicious for worshipping Shiva. The yatra also coinc ides with the festival of Maha Shivaratri, the great night of Shiva, when he is believed to have performed the cosmic dance of creation, preservation, and destruction.

Kanwar Yatra is a symbol of devotion, sacrifice, and penance of the Kanvarias who endure physical hardships and discomfort to please their beloved deity. It is also a way of expressing gratitude and seeking blessings from Shiva for fulfilling their wishes or solving their problems. Some Kanvarias also perform the yatra as a vow or a penance for their sins or mistakes.
