Varanasi Gaya Prayagraj Pind Daan Tour

  5 Days / 4 Nights

   Varanasi - Gaya - Bodh Gaya - Prayagraj

5 Days Varanasi Gaya Prayagraj Pind Daan Tour is one of the most opted religious tours in India. Gaya, Varanasi and Prayagraj are the ‘tirthas’ and performing Pind Daan therein holds immense significance as per Hindu religious beliefs. In Hindu Dharma, the duty of a son is to serve his parents during their lifetime and observing Shraddha rituals – Dwadashi or Barsi on death and Pind Daan in Pitripaksha or Mahalaya. Hindus believe that soul is immortal and the nature of ‘karma’ decides whether the soul is liberated or remains trapped in the cycle of birth-death-rebirth. According to Hindu beliefs, Pindadan is a simple and easy path to salvation. It has been said that Pind Daan, Tarpan and Brahmin Bhoj (food distribution among the Brahmins) are three main functions in the Shraddha. The sanctity of the River Phalguni & Vishnu Pad Temple in Gaya, the Triveni Sangam & Akshay Vat in Prayagraj and the Ganga ghats & Kashi Vishwanath Temple make these religiously and historically places ideal for offering the holy prayers and performing Pind Daan rituals in the guidance of a priest (pandit) so that ‘puja’ is conducted with proper vidhi (method).
