Kumbh Mela is a mass of Hindu pilgrimages in which Hindus congregate in a sacred river. It is the largest religious gathering in the world. It is held every three years at one of the four locations by rotation: Haridwar, Allahabad (Prayag), Nasik and Ujjain. Thus, the Kumbh Mela is held at each of the four places every twelfth year. Ardh (Half) Kumbh Mela is held in only two places, Hardwar and Allahabad, every six years. The rivers at these four places are the Ganges (Ganga) in Haridwar, the confluence (Sangam) of the Ganges and the Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati in Allahabad, the Godavari in Nasik and the Shipra in Ujjain.
