Confluence of the rivers

This is a holy place where the rivers -- Ganga, Yamuna and the invisible Saraswathi meet.

Kumbh Mela

Once every 12 years the Kumbh Mela occurs where millions of HIndus converge to take a holy dip at the confluence of the Holy rivers.

    I see you were in the Kumbh Mela.
    For us it has been an experience that we will never forget, it is for me impossible to explain all the memories, feelings and experiences we had in the Prayag
    We were lucky because we had big raining only the 15th in the evening . i think you were also there the same days as we so you had not problems with wind and rain.
    I suposse you had the Sangam . Congratulations !!!

      I do hope you enjoyed India. I enjoyed the Kumbh Mela, but not my visit to Kashi/Varanasi... I was not prepared for what I saw...
