Largest fair in the world
Kumbh Mela is supposedly the biggest fair across the world. Lakhs of people gather in this fair to perform certain rituals for body purification.
Organized in twelve years
It is organized in Northern India in Haridwar, Nasik, Ujjain and Allahabad. More than 50 million devotees are reported to come to bathe in the holy waters.
Sadhus and Nagas Visit this Mela every time
Hermits who have renounced all wordly pleasures visit this Mela often and so do the Nagas who are bare bodied. Nagas believe that the sky is the natural cover on their bodies and hence remain bare bodied.
Holy waters are worshipped
The holy waters of the pure rivers like Ganga, Godavari, Kshipra, Sangam and Prayag are worshipped by pundits, sainta and devotees. The tradition follows that each of the visitor has to offer prayer and take a few dips in the water.
Popular all over the world
Kumbh Mela is popular all over the world and is covered on all international and national news channels whenever it is held.
Brings Pious benefits
It is believed that the holy dip during Kumbh Mela and especially on Makar Sankranti brings a lot of blessings and goodies in the life of one and all.
This Mela is held when the planets Jupiter and the centre of the solar system that is Sun changes their positions.
This Mela is remarked by the rapid Cholera Outbreak way back in 1892 in Haridwar. Since then a committee was set up to take care of the arrangements every time.
The concept behind
The story goes around that the Gods and Demons had a big fight which continued for twelve days. One day and one night in heaven is believed to make one year. Hence, twelve years were formed.
Devotees have too much faith in this Mela and its significance.
