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 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 in India – Prayagraj Kumbh 2019

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 ka Mela as he belongs to Prayagraj (Allahabad).

Route Planning

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

Initially, he denies but later on, he agreed. I was happy to get his confirmation, but responsibility will be my about how to go. We plan to go tonight and come back tomorrow night.

Travel by Bus

Now the 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 the 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 the ticket. After meeting too many travel operator I got 02 tickets for me and Mr. Jain. Now we both were happy as the plan going to be the success to visit Holy Place in India.

The bus departure time was 10:30 pm. Now we both were 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 2019, prayagraj was approx 9 am. But due to Traffic issues, we reached there around 1 PM as of 26 Jan 2019. Tourist Bus drop us outside of the city due to rush. Then we catch Shuttle Bus to Ghat (Shuttle bus was especially running for pilgrims within the city).

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

Triveni Sangam

We moved towards to Triveni Sangam, River Ganga, Yamuna, and the Saraswati river were flowing together and got blesses of all the Holy Rivers. After Holy dip, we went to visit Akshay vat. 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 7 pm and captured night moments in our camera. It was looking great at night. After that, we move out of Kumbh Mela.

We already booked our return ticket. So we need to go to 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 to the bus stand before time.
