Kumbhmela is a "world's largest congregation of religious pilgrims" as recognised by UNESCO.
For 2021 , the Kumbh mela happened to be at Haridwar , and with With pandemic and restrictions in place, i got RT-PCR test done as per the government guidelines and fortunately was tested Negative and and good to go.
There are different snan dates for each Kumbh Mela, so i planned it on Mahashivrathri, we reached Haridwar just a day before the snan , and the place was already crowded with devotees and seers.
The main snan place is near Har-Ki-Pauri and rest of Ghats are opened for public , the Sadhus and Babas arrive from across the country to take part in this ritual.
Due to Pandemic , there was lot of changes and restrictions in place for public during the snan timings which resulted me not able to view the snan.
