A rather beautiful photograph depicting this so very famous Religious ceremony, so full of natural colour, detail, and warming light.

This crowd is nothing compare to the Kumbh Mela holy dip. I remember there were 1250000000 devotees took holy dip during 2010 maha kumbh.

I could guess from thumbnail that it is a D200 pic. dada er moddhe Haridwar ghure elen, eka na boudi ke nie ?
