About Us

Kumbh Melais a mass Hindu pilgrimage of faith in which Hindus gather to bathe in a holy river.

Traditionally, four fairs are widely recognized as the Kumbh Melas: Haridwar Kumbh Mela, the Allahabad Kumbh Mela, the Nashik-TrimbakeshwarSimhastha, and Ujjain Simhastha. The main festival site is located on the banks of a river: the Ganges (Ganga) at Haridwar ,the confluence (Sangam) of the Ganges and the Yamuna and the invisible Sarasvati at Allahabad; the Godavari at Nashik; and the Shipra at Ujjain. Taking a Bath in these rivers is thought to cleanse a person of all sins. The Kumbh Mela is held once in 12 years.

The exact age of this festival is uncertain. According to medieval Hindu mythology, The Lord Vishnu dropped drops of Amrita (the drink of immortality) at four places, while transporting it in a kumbha (pot).

The festival is one of the largest peaceful gatherings in the world, and considered as the "world's largest gatherings and congregation of religious pilgrims". There is no precise method of ascertaining the number of pilgrims. An estimated 120 million people visited MahaKumbh Mela in 2013 in Allahabad over a two-month period, including over 30 million pilgrims on a single day, on 10 February 2013.
