Significance of Kartik Purnima as flashed by me on the f.b on Nov.21,2010.

Bishwa Nath Singh :
The world famous Asia’s largest cattle fair held on the occasion of Kartik Purnima at Sonepur in Saran district of Bihar State in India that well-known for its Railways platform which is one of the largest in India. So far as religious aspect of Sonepur Mela is concerned, special significance is attached owing to the famous temple of  Shri Hariharnath and the Site of the battle of Gaj &Grah (Elephant & Crocodile)and rescue of the former by Hari (Lord Vishnu) During Kartik Purnima, the ceremonial bathing in the Ganges is held by all more in particular by Hindus .On the day of full moon (Kartik Purnima) immense crowd assembles and take bath there.. The famous far commences on this day and lasts for more than a fortnight. The Shiva temple, Kali temple and other temples and historical religious monuments are situated here. People come here to pay their oblation to the lords and thus its importance is not within Sonepur of Bihar rather it is of India and world fame besides being it a largest cattle fair.
