Kumbh Mela 2019

Kumbh Mela in Ujjain (Simhastha)

After every three years one of these cities gets to hold the Kumbh, thus each one getting the chance to hold the next Kumbh after 12 years. The next Kumbh at Ujjain will take place in the year 2016, and the Kumbh at Ujjain is called as Simhast.  The Kumbh mela at Ujjain is held at the banks of the river Shipra.

As the legend goes during the fight between the demons and the gods for the elixir of life, Ujjain was the place where the churning of the Amrit (Elixir) took place. As Lord Vishnu tried to hide the pot of Elixir away from the demons, four drops of it fell at four different places where the Kumbh mela is held and Ujjain being one of such place.
