Kumbh Mela is a public pilgrimage of Hindu pilgrimage in which the Hindus gather to take a bath in a holy river. It is the world’s largest religious assembly.
It is organized by rotating every third year on one of the four places: Haridwar, Allahabad (Prayag), Nasik and Ujjain. In this way Kumbh Mela is organized in every 10th year on each of these four places. Kumbh Mela is organized every two years in Haridwar and Allahabad only two places. There are rivers at these four places: Sangam (Sangam) of Ganga, Ganga in Haridwar and legendary Saraswati in Yamuna and Allahabad, Godavari in Nasik, and Shipra in Ujjain.
Aquarius means the meaning of a pitcher and fair is proper in Hindi. Pilgrimage is organized for two and a half months in each of these four places, where in Hinduism it is believed that the drops of nectar fell from the Aquarius made by the gods after the sea.
The festival is billed as “the largest church in the world of religious pilgrims”. There is no scientific method to ascertain the number of pilgrims, and the number of pilgrims who are bathing on the most auspicious day can be different; About 100 million people participated in the last Maha Kumbh Mela 2013 in Allahabad.
