Mahakumbh Mela 2013 Movie

This excellent full-length movie on the 2013 Mahakumbh Mela was produced for India's Saregama Devotional Channel. The full-length movie (1:42:00) has English subtitles. While the narration represents something of a philosophical 'grab basket', the scenes of the Maha-mela experience bring it home in full color for those who couldn't attend in person.

"The Kumbh Mela, believed to be the largest religious gathering on earth is held every 12 years on the banks of the 'Sangam'- the confluence of the holy rivers Ganga, Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati. The Mela alternates between Nasik, Allahabad, Ujjain and Haridwar every three years. The one celebrated at the Holy Sangam in Allahabad is the largest and holiest of them. The Mela is attended by millions of devotees including Sadhus. A holy dip in the sacred waters is believed to cleanse the soul. The Sangam comes alive during Kumbh and Ardh Kumbh with an enormous temporary township springing up on the vacant land on the Allahabad side of the river."
