Kumbh Mela is the greatest pilgrimage and festival in the Hindu religion. The event is a religious and cultural spectacle which occurs once in 12 years attracting participants from around the globe to take a dip in the holy waters of Ganga, Yamuna and the mystical Saraswati. It is a mesmerising confluence of holy men and pilgrims and faith reigns supreme. The first one I attended was in 2013 held is Allahabad in UP and subsequently the next one in Nashik, Trimbakeshwar, Maharashtra in 2015. The collection represents a snapshot of some of the pictures shot in both the festivals.
