2015 Nasik Kumbh Mela with Elephanta Caves & Mumbai

Kumbh Mela-2015 AT Nasik will commence from: 14th July-2015 to 25th September,2015

Kumbh Mela is the largest religious hindu gathering on earth taking place four times every 12 years when millions of Hindus gather together to take a ceremonial dip in the sacred river. The locations for the mela(festival) roves around the four cities of Allahabad (Prayag), Hairidwar, Ujjain and Nasik. According to legends it is said that at these four places the nectar of immortality were spilled from its kumbh(pitcher) during a battle between Gods and demons.

Kumbh Mela is celebrated to commemorate this victory for good in the battle for supremacy against evil. The major purpose of Kumbh Mela is to bathe in the rivers on days that are deemed auspicious. These dates are determined by teams of astrologers, who pinpoint the most favourable moment for the mass bathing to begin.

The tour package also includes a visit to the UNESCO World heritage site of Elephanta Caves near Mumbai which were hewn out of the hills in 7th century. There is an enormous statue of Mahesmurti (18 ft.) which is a remarkable sculpture depicting Shiva in his three-headed aspect: as Creator (facing right), Protector (the crowned face at the center), and Destroyer (facing left, with serpents for hair).
