Gyanendra Veer Vikram Singh, the last king of Nepal, reached Haridwar in Uttarakhand on Sunday to take part in the ongoing Kumbh festival in the holy city. Nepal’s centuries-old monarchy was abolished by Parliament in May 2008 and democracy was established. The president here was elected as the head of state.
During his visit, King Gyanendra met and took his blessings from Mahamandaleshwar Swami Kailashanand Giri (Mahamandaleshwar Kailashanand Giri Maharaj), Acharya of Sri Niranjani Akhara at Dakshin Kali Peetha Temple. He will offer prayers in the Kali temple and will also take blessings after seeing the saints. King Gyanendra has reached Haridwar for the first time on the occasion of Kumbh.
According to the Chief Ministers Office-CMO of Uttarakhand, the state CM Tirath Singh Rawat welcomed Raja Gyanendra Veer Vikram Singh when he came to the state.
CM said that welcome to Devbhoomi Uttarakhand and Haridwar Kumbh. You take holy benefit by taking Kumbh bath. Ranveer Singh Chauhan, director general of the Information and Public Relations Department, welcomed CM Rawat as a representative by offering flowers at Haridwar. Raja has thanked CM.
According to media reports, King Gyanendra will take a royal bath in Kumbh today and seek the blessings of the saints. Raja Gyanendra while talking to the media said that I want to thank Acharya ji for inviting me. This holy land is a peaceful place. Relations between India and Nepal will be further strengthened. The king further said that I pray to God for the good of the people in this era of corona virus epidemic.
Let us know that the Kumbh Mela in Haridwar has been held from April 1 to April 30. The Kumbh Mela usually lasts for 4 months, but has been reduced by a month due to the corona virus epidemic.
Today is the second royal bath of Kumbh on 12 April on the occasion of Somavati Amavasya. During this time, along with the monk saints of the Akharas, the common people will also get the effect of taking a dip in the Ganges. The first royal bath was held on 11 March.
