    The Maha Kumbh 2013

    by Saumz Updated Dec 10, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: My favourite is The Taj Mahal.... But I' am totally amazed and spell bound by the million foot falls in Allahabad during the Kubh Mela. I have lived in Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh for some 10 years and out of my experience Kumbh is one of the most crowded and packed religious gathering. If you want a camp site, try not to arrive immediately preceding the mass bathing Date:. To follow the bathing timetable, keep an eye out for the ‘Holy Dip Schedule’ that astrologers draw up for the event. The best viewing point is from the river bank, though on mass bathing days this can be a dangerous spot to be – people are regularly trampled to death at Kumbh Mela – so consider other vantage points.
    Its good to have photographers pass to click without any hassle. Your hotel, wherever you plan to stay can extend support for the same with a small fixing fee.
    Also for your information Motorized vehicles are ban during main bathing dates. It will be next to impossible to drive in the chaos. Apart from bathing dates, there is no such restriction but be prepared to walk within 1 kms radius of Sangam.
    Also coming to your accomodation issue I would suggest you to stick to the Deluxe and semi Deluxe accomodations. To make your travel cheap please do not compromise on the accomodation quality. A low end cheap accomodation will only make your travel a bad and an uncomfortable experience.

    Fondest memory: The Taj Mahal, epitome of love gives you the best to remember. One of the seven wonders of the world, Taj Mahal surely takes you to the romantic Mughal period. Visiting this epitome of love with the 'Love of your life' is a wonderful feeling and surely my fondest memory of Uttar Pradesh.

    Braj Parikrama Mathura

    by RAJASTHANBYCAR Written Feb 7, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Rainy month of Bhadon, the month when the Lord Krishna was born, is a time of colourful celebrations. The famous Braj Parikrama - a pilgrimage of all the places in Braj that associated with Shri Krishna, is undertaken. Traditionally, the Chaurasi kos (84 kos) pilgrimage of Braj Mandal, with its 12 vanas (forests). 24 upvanas (groves), sacred hill Govardhan, divine River Yamuna and numerous holy places along its banks, is undertaken annually by lakhs of devotees from all over the country.

    The Yatra extends to Kotban to the north of Mathura, to Nandgaon, Barsana and the Govardhan Hill to the west and South-west of the city and to the a banks of the Yamuna to the east, where the Baldeo Temple is located. Colourful melas and performances of the Raaslila (a depiction of the exploits of Shri Krishna) are distinctive to this festive period.
