Kumbh Mela is a monumental Hindu festival that showcases Indian spirituality and divinity. It has grown into such a cultural extravaganza where millions gather to experience the sacred spirit of the Hindu religion. The Kumbh Mela 2025 will take place in the holy city of Prayagraj.

As in all the previous Kumbh Mela, the main attraction in the 2025 edition of the Kumbh Mela will be the Shahi Snah (Royal Bath), where the mahants of various akharas will bathe in the holy river confluence of Ganga, Yamuna, and Saraswati.

Yogis, sadhus, saints, and other religious sects will come from all parts of India to celebrate this grand occasion. The river ghats along the Ganga will come to life during this occasion.

Legend of the Kumbh Mela

The origins of the Kumbh Mela are in the ancient Hindu texts and religious books. The Hindu mythological legends have stated why the Kumbh Mela is such a huge religious event. The story goes that when the Devas and Asuras were churning the cosmic ocean, nectar came out from this churning. This pot or kumbh contains Amrit or nectar of the gods, and it is so magical that anyone who consumes it will become immortal, and no one can kill them.

Lord Vishnu took the divine feminine form known as Mohini Avatar. She took the pot (kumbh) of Amrit from the Asuras and flew skywards. But as she was flying, some drops of this holy nectar fell on the earth.

These places became immensely holy. One of these places is Prayagraj (formerly Allahabad). The other places where the drops of nectar fell were Ujjain, Nashik, and Haridwar.

Shahi Snah (Royal Baths)

The main attraction of the Kumbh Mela is the Shahi Shan or the Royal Bath. This Shahi Shan is a grand occasion where mahants and followers of 13 Akhadas (Hindu monasteries) arrive in chariots and huge processions. They bathe in the Ganga and chant shlokas and prayers.

The arrival of these akharas is a visual treat for all the tourists, as devotees shout out ‘Har Har Mahadev’ and blog trumpets and horns to announce their arrival. Yogis, rishis, sadhus, and saints follow them, and they are covered in ashes and wear garlands on their necks. During the Kumbh Mela 2025, Shahi Snan will happen on 14 and 19 January, 4, 12, and 26 February 2025.
