  • tags: no_tag

    • The Mela is likely to draw nearly 20 million devotees during the six main religious bathing days. The first bathing day is on the occasion of Paush Purnima Dec 31.

      It is believed that taking a holy dip in Sangam during Hindu month of Magh strengthens life and makes it disease free. The Magh Mela will end Feb 12 on Mahashivratri.
