What is Kumbha Mela?

Kumbha Mela is one of the most fascinating displays of faith, in which millions of pilgrims from all across India come to take their sacred bath in the holy rivers. Srila Prabhupada along with his disciples attended the Ardha Kumbha Mela in 1971 and then the Purna Kumbha Mela in 1977 in Prayaga, Allahabad. This year in Allahabad, millions of people are expected to attend the Ardha Kumbha at Prayaga, Allahabad from 15 Jan – 4 March. ISKCON is doing a massive free prasadam meal distribution to the pilgrims. A video by Gauranga Das.
