Month long Sharwani Mela inaugurated by Arjun Munda in Deoghar
 

Ranchi: The month-long Shrawani Mela was inaugurated by chief minister Arjun Munda in Deoghar on Friday.

The annual fair is one of the most celebrated festivals of the state in which almost thousands of devotees traverse around 108 km on foot with holy water from the Ganga and offer it to Lord Shiva at Baidyanath Dham temple in Deoghar every day.

However the state government has deputed 100 doctors and over 400 para-medical staff on the 108-km route to provide healthcare assistance to the devotees, he added.
