The festival dates back the pre-Vedic period, as even in the Vedas Kumbha Mela is described as a tradition that is already well established.  The popularity of Kumbha Mela has only increased over the millennia, gathering millions together every twelve years at each of the four holy places in which the auspicious event occurs and making it the world’s largest gathering of people on Earth for one common purpose.  It is said that even those saints and sages who live in divine isolation, high in the Himalayas, engaged only in meditation and austerities, emerge from the mountains to attend the Kumbha.  Kumbha is a world-renowned trademark of India’s proud antiquity, and is a matchlessly divine occasion.
