Where Enlightenment Meets Extravagance

Sangam Nivas

Experience the grandeur of  the  Kumbh  Mela  enveloped  in an  environment  that  is  cosseted  with  chiming  bells,  incense  and flower fragrance interspersing flawlessly with the smoke from the  havan  kunds  (fire  places),  vedic  hymns,  mantras,  drum- beats,  the  blare  of  conchs  and  the  ring  of  holy  bells.  This ethereal and hypnotic ambience emits a trance like no other. Witness the  naga  sadhus  and  throngs  of  devotees  display their paramount vigor as they take a holy dip in the freezing waters,  with  the  sole  purpose  of  surrender  to  the  almighty and seeking nirvana.
