Well, even the name of it is enough to tell the world how special it is.
Wondering what we’re talking about? The world famous Kumbh Mela takes place on the banks of the confluence of three holy rivers, Ganga, Yamuna, and Saraswati in Allahabad.
The confluence is known as the Triveni Sangam. Even the colour of the water at the confluence is distinguishable for the three rivers. But that’s not the point. Kumbh Mela observes a football of millions of people when it Happens once in 12 years.
The devotees, pilgrims and the ones starving for the culture and tradition of Uttar Pradesh make it a point to be there. The vibrant and colourful atmosphere with happiness and faith protecting the auras of the visitors make this fair magnificently significant. And guess what? This fair goes on for a period of whopping 3 months! You know why devotees come here?
Well, legend had it that taking a dip in the river here washes away all the suns leading to a path of Nirvana or Moksha. Be that as it may, you have to be there as and when it happens because if Uttar Pradesh is unapologetically proud of one thing, it is this out-of-the-world fair.
