Devotees take holy dip in Himachal rivers on Makar Sankranti

Bracing the extreme winter chill, hundreds of devotees across Himachal Pradesh on Monday took dips in rivers to mark Makar Sankranti, a major harvest festival celebrated in various parts of the country. Large numbers of devotees were seen congregating at Tattapani, 50 km from Shimla and Manikaran, home to a Sikh shrine in Kullu district, for dips in the Satluj and Parvati rivers respectively, officials said.
