Every twelve years MAHA-KUMBH is held in rotation at the four holy places of Haridwar, Allahabad, Ujjain and Nasik. Each site’s celebration is based on a distinct set of astrological positions of the Sun, the Moon, and Jupiter, the holiest time occurring at the exact moment when these positions are fully occupied. It's the grandest of Celebrations...

The Kumbh Mela at Prayag, in particular, attracts millions of Pilgrims. In addition, a Great Kumbh Mela festival is held every 144 years at Prayag, most recently in 2001..... 🌻🌻🌻

There is a continuous influx and outflux of millions and millions of people who are supposed to tread on fixed-route on migrating roads...this is done intentionally by the civic authorities to maintain law and order and to avoid confusion. Everything and everyone is on the move...
The city is awake 24*7..
Locals sit with homemade snacks, sharbat, and tea outside their homes..to feed the hungry and thirsty pilgrims...
If you want to know what selflessness is....how faith moves 🏔️🏔️ mountains...what life is🧬🧬... come here and witness.
Every pilgrim is headed towards MA GANGA...to take that holy dip...on certain special dates, there is literally a Tsunami of Humans on this land...
