It’s one of the world best mela. Maha Kumbh Mela is special type of mela, its came after 12 year.
Hindu pilgrims and saddhus arrive in their millions – a sea of humanity pouring in on overcrowded trains, hired planes, buses, bikes, on horseback and on foot – to clean themselves in sacred rivers within the cities of Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain, and Nashik.

Thanks,
