The 5-day long Parshuram Kund Festival begins in Lohit district of Arunachal Pradesh from today.

Also known as the Kumbh of Northeast, the festival will conclude on January 16. People usually attend the festival to take a dip in the holy waters of Parshuram Kund which is believed to wash away all the sins. Thousands of devotees visit the sacred shrine of Parshuram in Tezu every year.

Chief Minister Pema Khandu had appreciated the Lohit district administration for the elaborate arrangements made and services, both online and offline, offered.

CM Khandu had said, “This time we are expecting around 1.5-lakh pilgrims during the festival. The district administration of Lohit has done an exceptional work in improving the road connectivity and other facilities for smooth conduction of the festival. My compliments to the officials for promoting the festival in such an organised and grand manner.”

Under the PRASAD scheme of the central government, the Kund site on the banks of Lohit river has witnessed massive transformation in the last couple of years to accommodate increased number of tourist footfall.

Khandu assured government support in organizing the festival every year by continuing to improve the facilities as required depending on the trend of footfall count.

CM Khandu had taken to his social media handles to promote the festival urging all to visit ‘Amazing Arunachal’ for a ‘lifetime experience’.
