Package Description

Kumbh Mela is the holiest congregation of Hindus. Devotees gather to attain salvation with bathing in the holy river waters. The largest gathering in the world happens every 12 years for Purna Kumbha and every 6 years for Ardh Kumbha. The pious festival is celebrated at four places in India: Nashik (on the banks of River Godavari), Ujjain (on the banks of River Kshipra), Haridwar (on the banks of River Ganga) and Allahabad (on the banks of Sangam; confluence of Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati).

The next Mahakumbh is in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. The holy gathering happens when Jupiter ascends into sun sign Leo's quarter and is called 'Simhastha Kumbh Mahaparv'. The ritual of bathing in the holy waters of Kshipra begins on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Chaitra (March-April) and continues on various dates until the full moon in the following month of Vaishakha.

Day 1

Every Kumbh Mela, the astronomical positions are similar to the situations which led to Samudra Manthan and the falling of nectar at four places on earth. During the festival the same cosmic energy is felt in the waters therefore all devotees gather for a dip in the holy waters. The waters are so divine that they are said to purify sins of the people and their ancestors. Hymns are chanted, people pray at the bathing ghats and charity is done. Kumbh is the world largest and holiest pilgrimage.

Day 2

Ujjain is one of the holiest cities according to Hindu mythology. The city of Mahakal, the Lord of all times, the city is a holy pilgrimage. Ujjain has been named and praised in various other names in Hindu texts and scriptures. Almost 84 forms of Lord Shiva are worshipped here. Shri Mahakaleshwar Temple, Shri Kaal Bhairav Temple, Shri Chintaman Ganesh Temple, Harsiddhi Temple, Shri Siddhwat Temple are some of the most revered places. The Simhastha Kumbh Mahaparv is special in Ujjain as it is the seat of divine Mahakal, who made the Manthan possible after having consumed the deadly poison (halahal) which came out of the churning.
