Kumbh Mela
Kumbha Mela is a religious fair held every twelve years at four different holy riverside sites by rotation. According to an account in the scriptures, during the churning of the ksheera Sagar (the holy ocean of milk) when the pot of Amrit (Elxir) was obtained from the ocean, a quarrel broke between the Devtas and the Asuras. Lord Vishnu fled with the Kumbh (Urn of Amrit) some drops of elixir fell in four places: Haridwar, Nasik, Allahabad and Ujjain. Therefore Kumbh Mela is held at Allahabad (Prayag), Nasik (Trimbkeshwar), Haridwar and Ujjain. Half or Ardh kumbh is held after six years. And a Maha Kumbh is held at Prayag (Allahabad) after twelve Purna kumbh or 144 years. The last Ardha Kumbh was held for 45 days starting in January at Allahabad in the year 2007. It attracted about 7 Crore (70 Million) people. The last Maha Kumbh was held at Allahabad in the year 2001; it was attended by at least 60 million people at that time which by any count was recorded as the largest single gathering of human beings anywhere in the world. People generally take an auspicious bath on the days prescribed in the Shastras; other rituals are also performed at the place of Kumbh Melas.
In the year 2013 Mahakumbh mela is held at Allahabad from 27th. January to 10th March.
