Akharas in Kumbh Mela 2013
During Kunbh Mela, the ceremonial procession of the Naga sanyasis believed to be an auspicious sight – has all the trappings of royalty. The Mahant is seated on a silver throne atop a caparisoned elephant. Below him are hundreds of Naga ascetics on foot, wielding lances, their naked bodies smeared with ash. Camels and Horses are also part of this procession which signifies the old Hindu organisation of the Chaturanga sena, or four-limbed army, moving towards the water of the Ganga.
