Overview of the Photo Tour

Mark Twain visited Kumbh Mela of 1895 and wrote “It is wonderful, the power of a faith like that, that can make multitudes upon multitudes of the old and weak and the young and frail enter without hesitation or complaint upon such incredible journeys and endure the resultant miseries without repining. It is done in love, or it is done in fear; I do not know which it is. No matter what the impulse is, the act born of it is beyond imagination, marvelous to our kind of people”

It is been more than a hundred years since the above lines were written and yet they are as true today as they have ever been.

Ardh Kumbh Mela is held only once in six years in Allahabad and we have timed our departure to be there during the main bathing dates.

 Detailed Itinerary

Day 01: 02 Feb’19 (Saturday): Arrive Allahabad

Arrive in Allahabad. On arrival, transfer to the camp for check-in.

Later, an orientation walk with your guide to all the important places that you may want to visit during your time.

Overnight at Aagman Camp (D)

 

Day 02-04: 03-05 Feb’19 (Sunday-Tuesday): Allahabad

The main highlight for most pilgrims during a Prayag Kumbha Mela is the observance of a sacred bath at the sangam. It is said that a bath in either of the sacred rivers has purifying effects, but where the three rivers meet, the bather’s purification is increased one hundred times. Furthermore, it is said that when one takes a bath at the sangam during the Kumbha Mela, the influence is one thousand times increased.

Another of the important task for a pilgrim is to associate himself with holymen by listening to their surmons and to watch their processions. To watch the Kumbh Mela processions is to witness the march of the ages. As the holy saints pass by on their various and sundry conveyances — elephants, horses, palanquins, chariots, cars, and camels — they are continually transmitting waves of powerful shakti (energy) to all the people who witness this awe-inspiring and most auspicious event. Devotees are overwhelmed by the palpable spiritual vibrations that pervade the entire atmosphere.

We will spend these days witnessing this amazing centuries old gathering.

During the main bathing days, it will be a grand spectacle to photograph this humanity as well as to photograph the holymen as they walk to take the royal bath here.

We will also have the opportunity to participate in religious discourses, Yoga as well as other rituals associated with the mela.

Overnight at Aagman Camp (B,L,D)
