Kumbh Mela

Crazy and chaotic are the words that best define the Kumbh Mela. Amidst the intermittent chanting of mantras, the heart rendering dance of the Aghoris and the holy ghats lit up with fiery diyas, you will have no chance but to go with the flow. The Kumbh Mela, will not just lend you with a day's feeling but a mind boggling experience of a lifetime.

Swarming like fireflies towards a bulbous giant, millions of zealous devotees come together to wash their sins during the Kumbh Mela.The origin of these mammoth spiritual gatherings can be traced back to the existence of Demons and Gods on earth. As per the Hindu mythology Kumbh derived from the Sanskrit word 'pitcher' had the 'Amrita' the immortal nectar that had appeared during the 'Samudramanthan'. It is believed that the Gods and the demons had churned the milky ocean to obtain the same.

One among the most euphoric religious event in India, the Kumbh Mela is celebrated four times in every twelve years. Herds of sadhus and devotees crowd the sanctified pavilions to be a part of the 'world's massive act of faith.' Kumbh Mela is considered the most auspicious time to take a dip in the sacred river to free themselves from their sins and attain a step forward towards salvation. The most popular draws of the mela are the Nagas (naked sadhus), Urdhawavahurs (who expose their body to extreme austerities) and the Kalpwasis (the ones who bathe three times a day). Apart from these, the rituals that are performed during this time are worth witnessing.

The Kumbh Mela observes the World's largest peaceful gathering at some of the very significant destinations in the history of Hinduism. Haridwar (river Ganga), Prayagá(Triveni sangam of Yamuna, Ganga and Saraswati), Ujjain (river Kshipra), and Nasik (river Godavari) are the Kumbh Mela Destinations which are said to be eternally blessed during this time.Enthusiastic Travelers and ardent roamers who yearn to explore the Cultural Heritage of India can be part of the incessant hysteria at the Kumbh.
