Abstract: Ganga River is known as sacred river in India. It is one of the major sacred river of India. It is my concern that our holy rivers are getting polluted. One of these river is Ganga at Haridwar(Uttarakhand) is getting polluted due to heavy metals. It is believed that Bhagirathi River is the source of Ganga River. It originates from Gaumukh, which is located at the base of Gangotri Glaciers in Uttarakhand. Gaumukh is about 18 km. from Gangotri and regarded as the birth place of Ganga on earth. How the holy river became so polluted today is a symbol of reverence of devotees is my concern.
