According to Hindu mythology, the Ganges River was brought to Earth by the gods to cleanse the Earth of sin. King Bhagirath, a descendant of the god Ikshvaku, prayed to the gods to bring the Ganges to Earth so that he could purify the souls of his ancestors. The gods agreed, and the Ganges River descended to Earth from the heavens.
