The Maha Kumbh Mela ("great festival of the pot of nectar of immortality") is held every three years in each of four different locations, returning to each of four places every twelve years. An Ardh (half) Mela (festival) takes place six years after the Maha Kumbh in each location.
Happy Kid. Prayag
A happy kid after his holy bat in the Sacred ganges. The Mela is very well organize, as you can see the authorities put poles to prevent the pilgrims to go too far in the water. Many pilgrims don't know how to swim and it could become very dangerous to have thousands of pilgrims free to go everywhere in the river.
