Overview

India is a cradle of incredible faith, mountains of belief, repository of all religions & together put the greatest assembly of mankind at one place. The history of Kumbh mela is as old as history itself that originates from the beginning of the Creation of universe. Chinese traveler Huan Tsang has written about this in his memoirs. It is believed that in order that Gods regained their might & energy, they had to sign a sort of temporary truce with their arch enemies, the demons or Asuras with a promise of sharing the nectar equally thereafter. However, when the Kumbha (urn) containing the amrita appeared, a fight ensued. This lasted for twelve days and twelve nights (equivalent to twelve human years) when all that happened was that the celestial bird, Garuda the vehicle of Vishnu flew away with the Kumbha of elixir and that is when drops of amrita (nectar) fell at four places on earth: Prayag, Haridwar, Ujjain and Nashik. Hence the Kumbh Mela is observed every twelve years at these places only.
