Maha Kumbh Festival

Maha Kumbh is a special time for seekers of Divinity.

Main Ritual- The Naga Sadhu in the various akhara of the Kumbh Mela initiates the bathing ritual during the various snans of Kumbh Mela.

There are thirteen Akhara which participates in Kumbh Mela and their ceremony is a treat to watch. Darshan of the Naga Sadhus is an important part of the Kumbh Mela. During the festival people can visit akhada and speak to sadhus and have blissful conversations with them.

It is truly a religious festival and people can listen to kathas and participate in Kirtans, Ganga Sabha and the Uttarakhand government installs loudspeakers and plays Ganga ji aarti which can then be heard in different parts of the town and it makes a truly wonderful atmosphere.

Government spends crores of Rupees for beautification of Haridwar, a truly good time to be in this city for a memorable experience.

During the festival, all the temples are worth visiting. We believe this kumbh government would lay special emphasis on yoga during Kumbh as India is yoga hub in this century.

Haridwar Maha Kumbh

Maha Kumbh Mela takes place every twelve years at one of four places: Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain and Nashik. The Mela in its different forms alternates between Prayag, Nashik, Ujjain and Haridwar every third year. This time it is being held in our city Haridwar , Uttarakhand, India in the year of 2021.

It is a festival for Hindus looking to wash their past sins and will be the largest gathering of a kind. It is considered as the world's largest congregation of religious pilgrims.

The main event of the festival is ritual bathing in the banks of the river Ganga in Har Ki pauri, Brahmkund. Maha Kumbh Mela one of the worlds largest gathering, is a Hindu pilgrimage of faith.

Har Ki Pauri

The Story

In ancient Vedic scriptures it is mentioned that the during Churning of the ocean, there was a fight between the Gods and demons for the Kumbh, a pot of Elixir (Amrit, drink of immortality), which emerged during the churning of Ocean.

Gods managed to take the pot and flew away from the battlefield, then Asuras (demons) started chasing them, during the chase, some drops of Elixir (Amrit, drink of immortality) spilled from the Kumbh pot to four places/rivers, presently where Kumbh Mela is held.

The Kumbh mela is celebrated at the four places as a mark of immortality reaching mankind. Since millennia, devotees have been taking bath in Ganga, Shipra, Godavari — the Kumbh rivers — hoping to gain freedom from the clutch of death. Of these four places, one is in Haridwar, Har Ki Pauri, Uttarakhand.

Its Importance

It is of very significant importance to bathe during Kumbh mela in Har ki Pauri. We Hindus believe that those who bathe in the sacred waters during the Kumbh Mela are eternally blessed by the divine. All their sins are washed away and they come one step closer to salvation.

This festival is 100's of years old.
