Kumbh Mela

Mela 2015


Kumbh Mela is the largest gathering of people for a religious purpose in the world. Millions

of people gather on different places for this auspicious occasion. Kumbha is a Sanskrit word

for Pitcher, sometimes referred to as the Kalasha.

Kumbh Mela is celebrated four times every 12 years, the site of the observance rotating

between four pilgrimage places on four sacred rivers: at Haridwar on the Ganges river,

at Ujjain on the Shipra, at Nasik on the Godavari, and at Allahabad on the confluence of the

Ganges, Yamuna and the mythical river Sarasvati.

Kumbh Mela is taking place in Nasik in 2015. It draws millions of devotees and tourists from

all over the country and the world. Trimbakeshwar is a holy town that houses one of the

twelve Jyotirlingas in India. It also is the origin of the river Godavari and is situated 38 kms

away from Nasik.

According to historical records, Nasik is one of four places where the elixir of

immortality, the ‘amrit’, fell to earth from a pitcher as gods and demons were engaged in the

tussle to gain the ownership of the jar full of ‘amrit’. The Kumbh Mela rotates among the

four holy sites every three years. The Kumbh Mela is marked by millions of devotees’plunge

into the river Godavari that is believed would cleanse their souls leading to salvation. Aritual

bath at a predetermined time and place is the major event of the festival.
