Location: Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain or Nasik, India
Dates: Vary widely, occurring when Jupiter enters Aquarius and the sun enters Aries. The event lasts for more than one month.

The largest religious gathering on earth happens fourfold each twelve years, once tens of lots of Hindu pilgrims close to require a ceremonial dip within the sacred river, Shipra or Godavari Rivers. Locations for the gathering hopscotch across the plains between Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain and Nasik, cities wherever drops of the nectar of immortality were spilled from its kumbh (pitcher) during a battle between demi-gods and demons.
The Kumbh Mela festival in India is an act of religion, and movement of individuals, on a miraculous scale. Hindu pilgrims and saddhus arrive in their millions – a sea of humanity pouring in on overcrowded trains, hired planes, buses, bikes, on horseback and on foot – to clean themselves in sacred rivers within the cities of Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain, and Nashik. In doing so, they believe they cleanse themselves of sin and liberate themselves from the cycle of life, death and rebirth. The festival commemorates a legendary battle between gods and demons over a pitcher of the nectar of immortality. The pilgrim's journey happens fourfold each twelve years, once at every of the four locations. This year it had been the flip of Haridwar, close to Rishikesh, at the foot of the himalayas, from fourteen Jan – twenty eight Gregorian calendar month.
