Kumbh Mela 2019 Prayagraj Allahabad is an auspicious gathering where Hindu devotees  gather,  In which Hindu come to wash off their sins through ritual bathing in holy river of Ganga, Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati from around the world.

History of Kumbh Mela

According to medieval Hinduism, Lord Vishnu spilled drops of Amrita at four places, while transporting it in Kalash(pot). These are Haridwar, Allahabad, Nasik and Ujjain.

Traditionally, 04 melas are widely recognized as the Kumbh Melas.
At any same place, the Kumbh Mela is held after every 12 years.

The main festival site is located on the banks of a river: the Ganges (Ganga) at Haridwar, the Sangam of the Ganges and the Yamuna and the invisible Sarasvati at Allahabad, the Godavari at Nashik, and the Shipra at Ujjain. Bathing in these rivers is thought to cleanse a person of all their sins.

My Itinerary to Holy Place – Kumbh Mela 2019 Prayagraj Allahabad

This time I also got chance to visit sacred place in Prayagraj (Allahabad).

As on day 25 Jan 2019 I was in office and doing routine work. My colleague Mr. Pandey come on his seat and was discussing with all of us about Kumbh Mela as he belongs to Prayagraj (Allahabad).

Route Planning

I asked him with curiosity about route from Delhi to Prayagraj. He told about many way to go e.g By Train, Bus and own vehicle. After his insist I was thinking to plan to go, then I asked to one of my colleague Mr. Jain to go and give me his company.

Initially he deny but later on he was agree. I was happy to get his confirmation, but responsibility will be my about how to go. We plan to go tonight and comeback tomorrow night.

Travel by Bus

Now ball is in my court, I have to organize about travel. I checked availability with Train but failed, as showing long waiting list for tonight and also for coming days too. So I plan to go by bus. As Mr. Pandey already told me about various options.

I check online about bus availability but not found any suitable option. So then I decide to go to Inter State Bus Terminal for ticket. After meeting to many travel operator I got 02 ticket for me and Mr. Jain. Now we both were happy as plan going to be success to visit India’s Holy Place.

Bus departure time was 10:30 pm. Now we both was waiting for night. I called Mr. Jain to my house at night as planned that we both go to ISBT together. At 10 pm we catch our Bus and start our journey from Anand Vihar.

Reached Kumbh Mela 2019, Prayagraj

Expected time of reaching to Kumbh Mela 2019 Prayagraj Allahabadj was approx 9 am. But due to Traffic issue we reached there around 1 PM as on 26 Jan 2019. Tourist Bus drop us outside of city due to rush. Then we catch Shuttle Bus to Ghat (Shuttle bus was specially running for pilgrims within city).

We was shocked to see arrangement. This Kumbh Mela was clean and well organized. Everybody  who was appointed there were doing their job honestly. Even did not found a single carbage.

Triveni Sangam

We moved towards to Triveni Sangam, River Ganga, Yumuna and the Mythical Saraswati were flowing together, and got blesses of all the Holy Rivers. After Holy dip we went to visit Akshayvat Vriksh. This Vriksh was recently available for general people after 450 yrs. Along with it we got blesses of Lord Hanuman ji.

 

We stay in Kumbh Mela till 7pm and captured night moments in our camera. It was looking great in night. After that we move out from Kumbh Mela.

We already booked our return ticket. So we need to go Bus Stand. We did not want to take any last time risk as we were new at that place. We took dinner and moved to Bus stand. As we want to go at bus stand before time.
