Ganges River Cruises


Flowing through the Indian subcontinent, originating in the Himalayas, the Ganges River is one of the most sacred rivers in the world and holds immense spiritual and cultural significance to the Indian people.  Dotted with thousands of temples along its banks (around 2,000 to be exact), the Ganges known as Ganga Mata (Mother), is revered in Hindu worship and culture as a goddess of forgiveness and mother to other gods.  It is believed that bathing in the waters of the Ganges can cleanse one's sins and grant liberation from the cycle of reincarnation.


The Ganges River carries with it with the hopes, aspirations, and traditions of countless generations, as well as travellers from across the globe wishing to delve deep into the heart of India’s fascinating historical and religious heritage.
