Bhopal, Nov 13: Devotees took holy dips on Tuesday in rivers and lakes across Madhya Pradesh and offered worship at shrines on the occasion of Kartik Purnima.
Pilgrims numbered in thousands at the ancient temple town Ujjain and myriads of tiny lamps were set afloat on the Kshipra in the evening. In the state capital, the Upper Lake was the venue for ablutions. Numerous Hindus journeyed to Bhojpur, approximately 30 km from here, bathed in the Betwa and prayed at the renowned Mahadev shrine. In Jabalpur and Hoshangabad, the faithfuls thronged the Narmada’s ghats. A fair was held at Bandrabhan – the confluence of the Tawa and the Narmada.
Similar reports were received from Indore, Gwalior, Sagar, Rewa, Shahdol, tribal-dominated Jhabua and Alirajpur districts. (UNI)
