Kumbh Mela, the largest peaceful congregation of pilgrims on earth and recognised by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity, has a history that dates back to thousands of years. The grandeur of the cultural extravaganza celebrated at four different cities in India, over a period of 12 years, draws throngs of devotees seeking spirituality and nirvana, bathing at sacred rivers to purify their sins.
The Allahabad Kumbh Mela scheduled for January 2019 is believed to be one of the most sacred pilgrimage places for the Hindus, held at the confluence (Triveni Sangam) of the Ganga, the Yamuna, and the mystical Sarasvati.
The Ultimate Travelling Camp (TUTC) will soon be traversing to the holy land to launch the ‘Sangam Nivas’ Camp and introduce travellers to the Kumbh Mela.
Sangam Nivas is positioned on a hillock, the camp is at a one-hour driving distance from the Allahabad airport, five hours from Lucknow and three hours from Varanasi. The closest rail-head is Allahabad junction.
Sangam Nivas will be operational from 10th January to 6th March 2019.
