Indian Festival – Kumbh Mela Posted by on Jul 29, 2015 in Hindi Language

Let me take you too a interesting and colorful festival from India which is called Kumbh Mela.

Kumbh Mela is the greatest pilgrimage and festival in the Hinduism.  The event is a religious and cultural spectacle which occurs once in 12 years attracting participants from around the globe to take a dip in the holy waters of river Ganges, Yamuna and the mystical Saraswati. It is held every third year at one of the four places by rotation: Haridwar, Allahabad (Prayaga), Nashik and Ujjain. This year, the Kumbh Mela is celebrated in Trimbakeshwar, Nashik.

According to Hindu mythology, it is said that drops of nectar fell from the Kumbh (Vessel)  carried by gods after the sea was churned to the rivers. It is believed that bathing in these rivers is thought to cleanse a person of all sins and give access to heaven after his/her death.


The festival has become the world’s largest congregation of religious pilgrims in 2013, when approx. 80 millions people attended the festival in a single day!
