Tungabhadra Pushkaras

According to Indian Astrology Brihaspathi (Planet Jupiter) is also called as Jeeva (The one who gives life). He gives energy and activeness. It is believed that river Tungabhadra resembles Makara rasi (Capricorn of zodiac) and the time when Brihaspati enters Makara rasi is good to take holy bath in Tungabhadra. Though the entire year is holy for the sacred dips, the first and last twelve days are considered most important.
Tungabhadra Pushkarams in 2008 will commence on 9th December and run upto 20th December.
