As thousands of Naga Sadhus flocked the banks of the Ganges at Sangam in Prayag Raj, we saw the beginning of the Ardh Kumbh celebrations this year. The 48-day-event, which began on January 15 this year is believed to be the biggest human congregation on earth and will see devotees from across the country and the world make their way to this holy city to pay reverence.
Meanwhile, hundreds of photographers have already arrived, their cameras in tow, waiting to take their best possible shot. Just over a day after the celebrations started, we've already started getting some amazing pictures. Have a look for yourself:
