The Nasik Kumbh
Kumbh Mela is the largest gathering of people for a religious purpose in the world. Millions
of people gather on different places for this auspicious occasion. Kumbha is a Sanskrit word
for Pitcher, sometimes referred to as the Kalasha.
Kumbh Mela is celebrated four times every 12 years, the site of the observance rotating
between four pilgrimage places on four sacred rivers: at Haridwar on the Ganges river,
at Ujjain on the Shipra, at Nasik on the Godavari, and at Allahabad on the confluence of the
Ganges, Yamuna and the mythical river Sarasvati.
Kumbh Mela is taking place in Nasik in 2015. It draws millions of devotees and tourists from
all over the country and the world. Trimbakeshwar is a holy town that houses one of the
twelve Jyotirlingas in India. It also is the origin of the river Godavari and is situated 38 kms
away from Nasik.
According to historical records, Nasik is one of four places where the elixir of
immortality, the ‘amrit’, fell to earth from a pitcher as gods and demons were engaged in the
tussle to gain the ownership of the jar full of ‘amrit’. The Kumbh Mela rotates among the
four holy sites every three years. The Kumbh Mela is marked by millions of devotees’plunge
into the river Godavari that is believed would cleanse their souls leading to salvation. Aritual
bath at a predetermined time and place is the major event of the festival.
