Kumbh Mela 2010, Haridwar, India - Photos! by QPRMARK on 28 February 2010 10:33pm
 
HI all,
Just got back....
My full photo gallery from the Hindu pilgrimage, the Kumbh Mela is now live on my website: http://www.imagetheearth.co.uk

The Maha Kumbh Mela which only ever happens every 12 years and is attended by around 60 million people. Held in Haridwar, Northern India it is the largest gathering anywhere in the world.

Any feedback is as always very welcomed! Please have a look: http://www.imagetheearth.co.uk

Thanks
Mark

In 2001 we were blessed by some Saddus in Kathmandu who had been to the Kumbh Mela which had been held a few weeks before.

They had 'holy' ash from the fire at the Festival in little bottles and put some on our foreheads.

They had invited me to sit with them while the husband (braver than me) climbed up some steps.

One day I'll get out the photos and scan them.

:)

Sorry! Forgot to say - FABULOUS photos, Mark (shame about the QPR but still!!)! They reminded me of the vibrant colours and faces of India and definitely reminded me of 'our' Saddus!!

Brilliant.

:)
