Ujjain Maha Kumbh Mela 2016

This festival will start on 22nd of April and will end on 21st of May 2016.

Ujjain Maha Kumbh Mela is the most significant and eventful festival for Hindus, which is held every three years. Ujjain is situated near the river Shipra and it is considered as one of the most sacred places of India. During the Maha Kumbh Mela Ujjain , millions of devotees flock to Ujjain to take a holy dip and worship the river Shipra. The sadhus from all parts of India come to Ujjain to attend the Kumbh in order to attain liberation and salvation. Ujjain Kumbh Mela is also the place where Maharishi Sandipani had taught Lord Krishna, along with Sudama and Balarama

When Guru(Jupiter) and the Sun are in the zodiac sign Scorpio(Vrishchik Rashi), it is celebrated at Ujjain. Ujjain Kumbh Mela is referred to as the ‘Simhastha Kumbha Mela’. It is a different experience when devotees and sadhus come together and go ahead for the shahi snan – a dip in the sacred river Shipra, which is believed to get rid of all sins of a person. After taking a dip in river Shipra, all pilgrims visit the temple and bow before the Lord and they echo the name of the lord (Mahakalesvara). The next Simhastha Kumbha Mela will be held in Ujjain in 2016
