It is believed that by taking a holy dip in the Kumbha Mela, a devout can undertake one of the most fulfilling spiritual journeys of his life. It is one of world's most massive act of faith and is said to free the devout from the Karmic cycle of life and death. Hope the pilgrims in the picture feel blessed to have experienced the life changing mystical bath, a new journey begins!
