What is Kumbh?
The Kumbh Mela takes place every three years rotating through Prayag, Nasik, Haridwar and Ujjain. An incredible spectacle, Kumbh Mela is the time when the sages, masters, yogis, saints and sadhus come down from their sacred abodes in the Himalayas. It is the largest gathering in the world of people with a religious purpose sharing knowledge and information about religion and other spiritual practices. The earliest account of Kumbh Mela dates from around AD 1500, though the general belief is that the festival goes back to the dawn of the universe. The Mela has been an organized religious activity since 1909.


The Mythology
Millions of years ago in a celestial wrest for a pot of nectar, four precious drops fell on the earth creating four of India's holiest places where millions gather once every 12 years (one year for every day of the battle) to take a dip in the holy water thus breaking the cycle of death and rebirth.....the Kumbh Mela.


The Holy Dip
A holy dip in the Kumbh purifies the sins thereby achieving salvation. It is believed that at the time of Kumbh, the water of the river gets charged with astonishing healing effects by enhanced electromagnetic radiation of the Sun, Moon and the Jupiter, the flux of which also varies in accordance to positions and the phases of the moon.
