Introduction of Kumbh Mela
Kumbh Mela-2010, HaridwarKumbh Mela is the largest religious gathering in the world. Kumbh Mela is a sacred Hindu pilgrimage that occurs four times every twelve years and rotates among four locations of India: Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain, and Nasik. During this Kumbh Mela, which is considered to be the most important Hindu spiritual gathering, thousands of sadhus and pilgrims come from all over India and abroad.

The most important features of this Mela are furious and exotic Naga Sadhus covered in ash, matted hairs and are known as preserver of faith.

Prayag (near the city of Allahabad, in the state of Uttar Pradesh) at the confluence of three rivers Ganga (Ganges), Yamuna and Saraswati.

- Haridwar (in the state of Uttaranchal) where the river Ganga enters the plains from Himalayas

- Ujjain (in Madhya Pradesh), on the banks of Ksipra river, and

- Nasik (in Maharashtra) on the banks of Godavari River.

The History behind Kumbh Mela
Kumbh Mela-2010, HaridwarKumbh's history is very old and originates from dates back to the time when Amrita Kalasha (pot of nectar of immortality) was recovered from Samudramanthan (the churning of the primordial sea). During this churning process, the Mandara Mountain was used as a churning rod, and Vasuki, the king of serpents, acted as the rope for churning. In this entire churning process, Dhanwantari, the divine healer, appeared with the "Kumbh" containing nectar in his palms, when the Kumbha (pot) containing the Amrita Kalasha appeared. After this a tense war between Devtas (Gods) and Asuras (Demons) ensued.

For twelve days and twelve nights (equivalent to twelve human years) the gods and demons fought in the sky for the possession of this pot of amrita. And it is said that during the battle, drops of amrita fell on to four places: Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain and Nasik. To commemorate this holy event of the Amrita Kalasha Kumbh is celebrated at these four places.
