Kumbh Mela at Allahabad

Every 12 years the huge Maha Kumbh congregation occurs in Allahabad. It is special this year as this one comes once in 144 years. Allahabad is one of the four holy cities in India, where the Kumbh happens. The other three cities are Haridwar, Ujjain and Nasik. Allahabad is the town where Sangam (confluence) of the rivers Ganges and Yamuna is located. 

 

The significance of these locations is because drops of nectar fell from the pot at these locations, due to the tussle between the Devas and Asurs (Demons) to take possession of the nectar pot.
