The Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Shri Nara Chandrababu Naidu today unveiled the new logo of the Godavari Maha Pushkaralu to take place this year. River Godavari, also referred to universally as ‘Dakshina Ganga’ (Ganges of the South) is the longest river in Southern India where Pushkaram is massively revered and celebrated.
The logo this time conveys a message of water, greenery, abundance, light and hope.
The Godavari Pushkarams are planned based on the transit of Jupiter into Leo. This year, the Pushkaralu will commence from 14 July 2015, at 6:26 AM. The main Pushkaralu will be organized for a total of 12 days and will end on 25 July 2015.
Godavari Pushkaralu occur once in every 12 years. The last Pushkaralu were held in the year 2003. The first 12 days of the Godavari Pushkaram is called Aadhi Pushkaram and the last 12 days are called Anthya Pushkaram. About 3 crore devotees are expected to take a dip in the holy river where other sacred rituals are also performed.
