Day wise itinerary:
    Kumbh Mela is a mass gathering of Hindus along the banks of the Holy Ganges. It is held by turn in four different cities in India: Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain, and Nasik depending on the positions of planets and stars. The Ardh (half) Kumbh fair is celebrated every six years at Haridwar and Allahabad, while the Maha (great and complete) Kumbh fair always takes place only at Allahabad every twelve years. The previous Maha Kumbh Mela, held in 2001, was attended by around 60 million people, making it at the time the largest gathering anywhere in the world in recorded history.

    The myth behind this festival dates back to ancient times which the earth was being taken over by demons and the gods were cursed. In order to restore their powers, the gods had to drink nectar which they procured by churning the oceans. The god Shiva was given the task of delivering the nectar to the gods, and in the process was chased by the demons. Four drops fell in different parts of India, every three years one of these four places hosts the Kumbh Mela which is attended by an estimated 10 million people. At the Kumbh Mela, there are auspicious bathing dates when the numbers of pilgrim swell fourfold as they bathe in the holy river. A common sight in Haridwar will be the presence of “Naga Sadhus”, distinct by their ash covered naked bodies and long hair tied in a series of knots. They are believed to have supernatural healing powers, and supposedly live only on herbs.
