Where do the dead receive moksha? Singapore's river Ganga – Changi beach

Do you believe in reincarnation? If so, what do you do to escape the cycle of rebirth? According to Hinduism, this cycle can be broken if the ashes of the cremated bodies are scattered at the holy river, Ganges.
The Ganges is not merely a river, for Hindus it is a symbol of purity and a goddess, Ganga. Hindus believe that cremated ashes scattered in Ganga will grant the dead person remission of sins and facilitate Moksha (liberation from the cycle of life and death).
But what if you do not have access to Ganga? Hindus who are scattered the world over, recognise that waters which flow into sea are an acceptable substitute – and for the Hindus in Singapore, Changi beach is that substitute for the holy river.
No permits are needed for scattering of ashes in open waters off Changi (near carpark 6).
