The biggest and most colorful pilgrimage on earth
For Hindus, the once every 12 years Kumbh Mela is the ultimate pilgrimage. It is during this event that the Amrita, the precious nectar of immortality, resurfaces from one of India’s sacred rivers.
During Kumbh Mela, the city of Allahabâd and its 1.5 million residents inflates uncontrollably during two months with up to 70 million visitors to become the largest human gathering in the world.
This exceptional film unveils the infinite diversity of Hinduism and its most colorful and disconcerting forms of worship.
