Allahabad India

Allahabad is a metropolitan city in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The city's original name Prayaga, or "place of offerings" comes from its position at the sacred union of the rivers Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati. This is where what is believed to be the largest religious gathering on the planet is held, the Kumbh Mela, which happens once every 12 years. 10 Feb 2013 was the biggest bathing day at the festival, where over 30 million devotees and ascetics took a holy dip.
