INFORMATION ABOUT AKASHIGANGA
Akashiganga is one of the most significant pilgrimage located in the north eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh in India. Akashiganga in Arunachal Pradesh is believed to be associated with the legend of Sati (the consort of Lord Shankar) recited in the 8th century Kalika Purana. The place provides a magnificent bird's eye view of the Brahmaputra glimmering far below.
It is believed that, Lord Shankar when saw the dead body of Sati, could not resist himself from anger and started doing Tandava (the dance of destruction). To bring him (Lord Shankar) out of attachment for the dead body (of Sati) and save the world from destruction, Lord Vishnu used his 'Sudarshan Chakra' to cut the body into pieces.
During this process, it is said that, the head of Sati fell in the area, located about is 12-km from Malinithan towards Along in West Siang District of Arunachal Pradesh. This place is called Akashiganga and is very popular as a sacred place.
