Sindhu Darshan Festival : Introduction


Sindhu Darshan Festival is celebrated on the full moon day (Guru Poornima) in the month of June. It stretches on for three days. The Sindhu Darshan Festival is organised annually at Leh. People travel for a Darshan and Puja of the River Sindhu (Indus), which originates from the Mansarovar in Tibet. The festival is a celebration of this river. The Festival aims at projecting the Sindhu River as a symbol of multi-dimensional cultural identity, communal harmony and peaceful co-existence in India. It is also an opportunity for people from around the country and overseas to visit the beautiful regions of Leh and Ladakh.

Sindhu Darshan is a movement, which rediscovered the flowing legend of Ladakh with its imprints of fables, and a 5000 year old history embedded in its fertile silt, which has enriched humankind for ages. Each turn of the river unfolds a unique culture of the land it passes through. The main reason behind the celebration of Sindhu Darshan Festival is to endorse the Indus River (Sindhu River) as an icon of the communal harmony and unity of India. The festival is also a symbolic salutation to the courageous soldiers of the country, who endanger their life to save ours. Sindhu Darshan Festival was first time organized in the year 1997. Many rivers and river valleys worldwide have played a significant role in the evolution, sustaining and development of civilisations. Notable amongst these are the Nile, Tigris - Euphrates, Sindhu (Indus) and Hwang Ho-Yang Tse Kyang. Mighty civilisations grew up on the banks of these great river systems. These rivers not only catalysed the production of crops but also facilitated their growth of trade by providing convenient transport lines.
