Sindhu Darshan, Ladakh
(01-03 June’9)

As the name suggests, the Sindhu Darshan Festival, is a celebration of River Sindhu, also known as the Indus, which originates from the Mansarovar in Tibet. As part of the celebrations, various groups from different states in India bring water from the other mighty rivers in the country in earthen pots and immerse these pots in the Sindhu River, thereby mingling the river water with other waters of the land. The Festival aims at projecting the Sindhu River as a symbol of multi-dimensional cultural identity, communal harmony and peaceful co-existence in India. This festival is also a symbolic salute to the brave soldiers of India who have bravely fought the odds at Siachin, Kargil & other places.

The festival promises a kaleidoscope of Indian culture and an exciting array of performing arts being brought together at an exciting place.
