In Photos: Devotees Gather At Simhastha Kumbh Mela 2016 in Ujjain – The Quint
Early on Friday morning, the month-long Simhastha Kumbh Mela began in Ujjain, which is the largest gathering of Hindus in the world. Held every 12 years in this holy city, people, saints and seers come from all over the country to pay their respects to Lord Mahakaleshwar, one of the 12 Jyotirlingas in the country, and bathe in the consecrated waters of River Kshipra.
The expected footfall for the Mela is over 5 crore, including seers, for which elaborate security, logistical and “green” arrangements have been made by Madhya Pradhesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
