The largest human congregation in the world, the Kumbh Mela reaches its last day today. With the belief that taking a dip in the Ganga will pave the way for their salvation, over 130 million pilgrims are expected to participate in the 55-day festival.
An estimated 1 crore devotees are expected to bathe on this auspicious day, officials say.
Heavy rush on their mind, visitors began arriving at the makeshift Kumbh Nagri in Prayagraj even before midnight. By morning, the bathing ghats brimmed with colours of life.
