Kumbh Mela in 2016

Purna Kumbh (Simhastha) Mela in Ujjain will be held in 2016, April 22 to May 21.

The Dattatreya spear and the Sun spear, kept in the Dattatreya Akhara, are first bathed in the river Kshipra (divine nectar) at the beginning of the Kumbh Mela. The gadipati of the Akhada, now ParamanandaPuriji Maharaj, is the first to take bath at Kumbh Mela, followed by sadhus of Juna Akhara, after which other sadhus and then the general public is allowed to take bath in the river.

The Municipal Corporation of Ujjain has been very cooperative. It has a large budget for the preparations of the coming Kumbh Mela.

The Adi Purana describes Ujjain as the most sacred city on the earth.
