FHALGU RIVER

FHALGU RIVER

The river, which remains dry throughout the year except for a few days during the rainy season, is a lifeline for the Gaya and parts of Jehanabad district as most of the water pumping stations are installed along the banks of the river to extract the underbed water from Falgu.

Pilgrims arriving here to perform ‘pind daan’, or rituals for salvation of their ancestors’ souls, have no option but to either use the drain waters flowing across the river or to cough up special premium to get holy waters of Falgu.
