The first written evidence of the Kumbh Mela can be found in the accounts of Chinese monk Xuanzang (alternately Hsuan Tsang) who visited India in 629–645 CE, during the reign of King Harshavardhana. However, similar observances date back many centuries, where the river festivals first started getting organised. According to medieval Hindu theology, its origin is found in one of the most popular medieval puranas, the Bhagavata Purana. The Samudra manthan episode (Churning of the ocean of milk), is mentioned in the Bhagavata Purana, Vishnu Purana, the Mahabharata, and the Ramayana.
The account goes that the Devas had lost their strength by the curse of Durväsä Muni, and to regain it, they approached Lord Brahma and Lord Shiva. They directed all the demigods to Lord Vishnu and after praying to Lord Vishnu, he instructed them to churn the ocean of milk Ksheera Sagara to receive amrita (the nectar of immortality). This required them to make a temporary agreement with their arch enemies, the Asuras, to work together with a promise of sharing the wealth equally thereafter. However, when the Kumbha (urn) containing the amrita appeared, a fight ensued. For twelve days and twelve nights (equivalent to twelve human years) the Devas and Asuras fought in the sky for the pot of amrita. It is believed that during the battle, Lord Vishnu (incarnated as Mohini-Mürti) flew away with the Kumbha of elixir spilling drops of amrita at five places: Allahabad (Prayag), Haridwar, Ujjain, Nashik and Chataradham.

Navin Benson de Cozynuk à été absolument remarquable tant pour son professionnalisme que pour sa bienveillance, à faire que notre voyage en INDE , soit un voyage fabuleux. Une grande ponctualité du chauffeur, des hôtels très bien choisis, des visites organisées. Un tour organisé sur mesure. Un très grand merci.
Agencia 100% fiable. Navin y su equipo nos han tratado fantásticamente y Bophal, el conductor, ha sido sin duda lo mejor del viaje. Atento, agradable y muy cercano. Si contactais con la agencia preguntad por él y seguro que no os arrepentis. Gracias por todo. ♥️
We are a family of 5 with 3 kids and we traveled around northern India for over 2 weeks. The planning of such a trip takes alot of time and details. If found the perfect company with Xasmin (CozyNuk) working particularly Navin. I would without hesitation use Navin again to help plan a future trip to India (which was magical).
