Mahakumbh #1

  I recently visited Maha Kumbh Mela, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh. Mahakumbh happens every 12 years and Ardh-Kumbh happens every six years. It is believed that the drop of elixir fell from the Kumbh (pitcher) after samudra manthan, according to one of the story from Hindu mythology. To read further about Kumbh read here on wikipedia. To read the story click here.

People from across the nation go to Mahakumbh to bathe in Holy water.
