MUMBAI, India, September 19, 2018
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 Hindus, held at the confluence (Triveni Sangam) of the Ganga, the Yamuna, and the mystical Sarasvati.
On the invitation of Shri Shri 108 Mahant Late Shri Bala Krishna Das ji Maharaj and his son Shri Bipin Bihari Pandey ji Maharaj at Shri Ramanandiya Vaishnav Ashram Pratisthan Puri, Samudra Koop Tirth, Jhusi, Allahabad, The Ultimate Travelling Camp (TUTC) will soon be traversing to the holy land to launch the ‘Sangam Nivas’ Camp and introduce travellers to an unparalleled, multi-sensory journey into the very heart of the Kumbh Mela. TUTC’s latest offering – Sangam Nivas, Allahabad – aims to provide the quintessential essence of the Kumbh Mela to seekers of spirituality and well being, while bringing forth the holistic aspects of Indian philosophy and mythology.
