free-joker-poker-games-online,Kanwar Yatra is associated with the churning of the ocean or 'Samudra Manthan' which took place in the month of Shravan. According to Hindu Puranas, the Samudra Manthan or the churning of the ocean caused various things to come out of the ocean including poison or 'vish'. As no one was willing to consume the poison, Lord Shiva decided to take it. He immediately consumed the poison which resulted in his throat turning blue due to the poison's effect and burning sensation. This is the reason why Lord Shiva is known as 'Neelkanth'. At that moment, Ganga Jal was poured on Shiva for helping him to cool down from the burning sensation. As a result, the practice of pouring Ganga Jal on Shiv Ling is still being carried out by devotees.
