Akashiganga Arunachal Pradesh

Akashiganga in Arunachal Pradesh
Akashiganga in Arunachal Pradesh
Akashiganga is one of the most significant pilgrimage points located at a distance of 12 kms in the north eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh in India. Akashiganga provides a magnificent view of the River Brahmaputra that flows far below. Akashiganga is known for its picturesque beauty. Tourists throng it in winter.

This place is believed to be associated with the legend of Parvati (Sati) mentioned in the 8th century Kalika Purana. The legend says that Lord Shiva after seeing the dead body of Sati could not resist himself from anger and started doing Tandava (the dance of destruction). To bring him 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, the head of Sati fell in the area, located about 12-km from Malinithan towards Along in West Siang District of Arunachal Pradesh.

This place has a temple near the road and also a Sacred Kund. Going down 100 meters down through a spiral path the pilgrims will find a sparkling object in the `Kund` but going closer down, the object is invisible. Pilgrims take a holy dip in this Kund.

To reach Akashiganga in Arunachal Pradesh, the nearest airport is in Dibrugarh or Leelabari from where one has to come down to Itanagar to avail a bus or other vehicle. Car and buses are also available from Malinithan.
