Mahakumbh Haridwar 2010


                             To commemorate the holy event  of  the Amrita  Kalasha, recovered from Samudramanthan being put at  4 places, Kumbh is celebrated every 12 years. According to other Pauranic  legends,  actual fight took  place between Devtas and Asuras resulting in the Amrita Kalash being knocked, out  of which  Amrita (Nectar) fell down at 4 places, namely Haridwar, Prayag, Ujjain and Nasik. The Kumh is celebrated by bathing in the holy Ganges by millions of Hindus at the above sites. Haridwar is the nearest place in North India for Kumbh snan of 2010.
                            There are various ghats where the snan can take place including Har Ki Paudi, Subhash Ghat and Gau ghat.
