Here’s what makes the Sangodd of Cumbarjua, in Goa, so unique.
The Sangodd celebration takes place on the seventh day of Ganesh Chaturthi on the Cumbarjua canal connecting Marcel and Cumbarjua.
People flock to the site to see the annual parade of floats on water. Two canoes or boats are tied together on which a theme-based float is depicted.
Usually, these floats are based on mythology and other relevant themes from the Hindu scriptures and also current issues.
During the parade, one can hear sounds of traditional musical instruments like dhols and tashes.
Youngsters are more excited to be part of the floats. They pick up the best characters and enact various scenes and events from mythology.
At the end of this celebration, you can find Ganesha idols on the boats being immersed in water.
