What are the special attractions at the Kumbh Mela?

The Kumbh Mela is the type of event that is difficult to express in words. This is a festival with many attractions, significant occasions, rites, and spiritual ascents to god. But when we discuss the main draws of this fire, we focus on a few key points.

Naga Sadhu: The foundation of this event is the Naga Sadhu. Nagas are difficult to locate in India because they mostly lived in the Himalayas or locations with thick forests. They perform live at this fair among the general public as the event’s star attraction. The best draw for pilgrims and tourists from all over the world is always the naked body covered in ash, the long hairstyles, and the technique of armouring.

Bathing at Triveni Sangam: This major event’s focal point is Triveni Sangam, where devotees take a sacred bath in the meeting place of three rivers.

Kinnar Akhara“: This women’s Akhara was held for the first time at the preceding 2019 Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj. For the first time, women were treated with the same respect and took part in the event alongside their supporters during a male-dominated event. 

It is an uncommon experience for pilgrims and devotees to interact with the lady priest and saints for the first time. The same thing will occur in 2025 at the next Kumbh Mela when they arrive in large groups and pilgrims ask for their blessings.
