Prayagraj/Haridwar (Uttar Pradesh/Uttarakhand): Devotees across Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand on Friday took holy dips on the occasion of ‘Magh Purnima’, the full moon night in the Magha month of the Hindu calendar.

To mark the occasion, the Prayagraj District Administration showered flower petals on devotees at Triveni Sangam, also known as Sangam Ghat, the meeting place of three rivers — the Saraswati, Yamuna, and Ganga (Ganges).

Devotees in Prayagraj and Haridwar were seen observing the holy occasion by offering diyas (lamps) in the water.
Magh Purnima is celebrated around the months of January and February and Lord Vishnu is worshipped during this time. (ANI)
