Day 04 : Nashik (Participation in Kumbha with Sahi Snan / Holy Bath)

Morning drive to Nashik to visit Kumbh Festival. There are certain bathing dates, when you will have opportunity to see more religious people in processions and bigger gatherings. The observance of Kumbh Mela has achieved international popularity as "The biggest act of faith." Millions of pilgrims come to participate in the holy event of Maha Kumbh with a tremendous faith. They have a "persistent trust in something sublime". The pilgrims come from all walks of life, with a belief that their sins will be washed off in the holy waters of the sacred river Ganges if they take a dip during the Kumbh but the actual and more science based reasons are different. It is actually the position of stars and constellations during the Kumbh that makes it significant to take a dip in the river at that time..
