Once located on the bank of river Ganges, Soron now lies about 10 km from the present course of the river. There is a sacred kund located in Soron where people drown the remains of their passed away familay members. It is said that if human bones are left in this kund, they dissolve and disappear over a period of time. This phenomenon is unexplained.
Soron is also a well known pilgrimage spot. Devotees from far and wide travel to this city to pay respect to the almighty and seek blessings.
In the months of October & November, Soron plays host to an animal fair. All types of animals are traded. Best breeds of Horses and Camels are displayed and auctioned. It is a colourfull event lasting for up to a week.
