Ujjain Kumbh Mela 2016
Ujjain is one of the four places where Kumbh Mela is held after every 12 years at sacred River Shipra, when the Sun is in the zodiac Aries and the Jupiter is in the zodiac Leo. Millions of devotees take dips, worship and attend the religious ceremony of Kumbh Mela to attain libration from the vicious cycle of birth-death-rebirth. It is believed that those who get a royal bath in holy Shipra River on the occasion of Kumbh Mela can wash their sins of all previous births. The devotees consider it as an opportunity to get them revived from the never ending birth cycle.
