About Kumbh

Kumbha is a Sanskrit word meaning a Pot (Vase) of specific design ,traditionally, it is made by a particular community called Kumbhars (Potters) also known as Prajapatis.In the context of Hinduism the kumbha symbolises the womb and represents fertility, life, sustenance and generative power of human beings. Often goddesses specially the Ganges are depicted holding this Kumbh full of Gold coins in her hand. While the word ‘Mela’ means ‘a Gathering’ or ‘a meet’, or simply a fair. The first Kumbh (Pot) was created by god Vishwakarma on the occasion of the churning of the ocean (Samundramanthan) for keeping safely the Amrit (Nector).This particular festival is called Kumbh Mela because it is also celebrated when the planet Brihhaspati (Jupiter) enters the house of Kumbh (Aquarius).

Kumbh 2021: Why in Haridwar

It is said that a few drops of Amrit (Elixir) fell into the Brahmkund of Har-Ki-Pauri. Therefore a dip in the Brahmakund on particular days (during Kumbh Mela) when the planet Jupiter (Brahaspati) enters the sign of Aquarius (Kumbh) is considered very auspicious. This rare combination is once in every twelve years and is again in 2021 this celestial event will repeat, that’s way the Maha Kumbh will be is celebrated at Haridwar.

Main bathing Dates

There are specific dates during the festival, which are specially considered very auspicious and people in very large number gather in Haridwar to take bath in the Ganges. Whole town is full of activities on these dates and different religious organizations with all their members take bath in the river.

The scene of monks taking bath early morning at the time of the sunrise is simply amazing and awe-inspiring. As the town is very crowded, so it is advisable to reach Haridwar one day in advance to explore these bathing dates.
