Kumbh Mela is the most sacred of India’s many religious festivals. It occurs at the confluence of the Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati rivers at a point of land called the Sangam, near the northern city of Allahabad. It is one of four spots where the god Garuda rested while protecting a pitcher containing the nectar of immortality from pursuing demons. A few drops of the nectar spilled out, and once every 12 years the waters flow with the nectar. Those who bathe in the rivers will be purified of their sins and escape the cycle of death and rebirth.
It is also a chance to meet and listen to popular spiritual leaders. The last Kumbh Mela, in 1989, attracted 30 million people. The festival in 2001 was at the end of a 12-mela cycle, which made it the holiest gathering India had seen in 144 years. A specially formed mela administration was responsible for building a massive tent city to house the estimated 50 million pilgrims. Indians from all classes came from across India and as far away as Britain and the United States. Many of the pilgrims were sadhus, wandering holy men who have given up their ties to society to practice meditation and yoga while traversing the countryside preaching the tenets of Hinduism and giving spiritual advice.

Prayag (near the city of Allahabad, in the state of Uttar Pradesh) at the confluence of three rivers Ganga (Ganges), Yamuna and Saraswati
Haridwar (in the state of Uttar Pradesh) where the river Ganga enters the plains from Himalayas
Ujjain (in Madhya Pradesh), on the banks of Ksipra river, and
Nasik (in Maharashtra) on the banks of Godavari river.
The pilgrimage occurs four times every twelve years, once at each of the four locations. Each twelve-year cycle includes the Maha (great) Kumbha Mela at Prayag, attended by millions of people, making it the largest pilgrimage gathering around the world.

The observance of Kumbha Mela is based upon the following story : thousands of years ago, perhaps in the Vedic period, gods and demons made a temporary agreement to work together in obtaining amrita (the nectar of immortality) from the Milky Ocean, and to share this equally. However, when the Kumbha (pot) containing the amrita appeared, the demons ran away with the pot and were chased by the gods. For twelve days and twelve nights (equivalent to twelve human years) the gods and demons fought in the sky for the possession of this pot of amrita. It is said that during the battle, drops of amrita fell on to four places : Prayag, Haridwar, Ujjain and Nasik. Thus, Kumbha mela is observed at these four locations where the nectar fell.

Kumbha Mela is attended by millions of people on a single day. A ritual bath at a predetermined time and place is the major event of this festival. Other activities include religious discussions, devotional singing, mass feeding of holy men/women and the poor, and religious assemblies where doctrines are debated and standardized. Kumbha Mela (especially the Maha Kumbha Mela) is the most sacred of all the Hindu pilgrimages. Thousands of holy men/women (monks, saints, sadhus) grace the occasion by their presence. The suspiciousness of Kumbha Mela is in part attributed to the gathering of thousands of holy men/women at one place on earth

According to astrologers, the 'Kumbh Fair' takes place when the planet Jupiter enters Aquarius and the Sun enters Aries.
