Devotees started to gather at different ghats since early morning to have holy bath in Ganga. After the bath, they offered Arghya to sun God and prayers to Ma Ganga.
Devotees also thronged near by temples of the city to offer prayers to deities.
On the occasion of Satwani, people of Bihar took Sattu (fried gram floor) with green mango "Chatni".
The day is called Mesh Sankranti as Sun enters Mesh Rashi.
