Large number of Pilgrims belonging to Sanatan Hindu religions come to Gaya every year to offer “Pinda” for obtaining Moksh for their ancestors and for this reason they offer “Pinda” & perform religions ceremonies on “Vedis” located at Vishnupad Temple, Falgu River, Akshaywat & various other places. It is believed that performing “Pindadaan” in Gaya in the “Pitripaksh” helps in attaining Moksha to the souls of the ancestors.
