The religious pilgrimage Kumbh Mela abbreviates the science of astrology, astronomy, spirituality, cultural customs and ritualistic traditions and practices making it remarkably rich in knowledge. In Hinduism, Kumbh Mela is a religious pilgrimage that is rejoiced four times over a course of 12 years.
During the Kumbh Mela, people from various cultures come together and partaking in the spectacle which is the largest amicable congregation of humanity. It is a great privilege to participate in the rituals of the holy bath at the Ghats.
The numbers of commemorations take place to attract millions of pilgrims to attend the Kumbh Mela including the traditional procession of Akharas called ‘Peshwai’ on elephant backs, the shining swords, horses and chariots and rituals of Naga Sadhus during ‘Shahi Snaan’.
The geographical location of Kumbh Mela is over four locations in India and the site of mela keeps rotating between four these pilgrimages as listed below:
1. Haridwar on the Ganges in Uttarakhand
2. Ujjain on the Shipra in Madhya Pradesh
3. Nashik on the Godavari in Maharashtra
4. Prayagraj at the gathering of the Ganges, the Yamuna, and the fictitious Sarasvati in Uttar Pradesh
The celebration of each site is based on a distinguished set of astrological positions of the moon, sun and the Jupiter. The celebrations occur when these positions are fully occupied and it is considered to be the religious time in Hindu religion.
This time UP Government has envisioned Bhavya Kumbh and Divya scheduled from January 15 to March 31, 2019. Khumb Mela will offer the devotees an unforgettable pilgrimage experience. The mingling of grand traditions and the deployment of modern techniques provide the immense satisfaction to the spiritual gurus, kalpavasis, dignitaries, foreign visitors, and the pilgrims during their visit to Prayagraj.
With great pleasure and happiness, all these states welcome everyone to visit and be a part of the wonder Kumbh Mela.
