Haridwar Kumbh Mela to be held from 1st April

-For the 1st time the Kumbh Mela is being organised for such a short duration. 

-Normally the mela goes on for a period of 4 months.

The Kumbh Mela at Haridwar is held every 12 years. There is no specific date as it is based on Hindu astrology. The mela lasts for almost 4 months. This year there was a lot of confusion regarding this mela due to the pandemic, but putting an end to all the suspense it has been announced that the mela will begin on 1st April 2021.

The only surprising part is that this year the mela will be held only for 28 days. The duration has been limited to 28 days in the wake of the pandemic. As informed by Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, the duration of the mela has been decided after taking due consent of the ascetics. The SOP will have to be strictly followed by the devotees, he said.

As per the SOP, the devotees will have to produce a covid negative report for attending the Kumbh Mela. The report must not be more than 72 hours old before their arrival. An official notification in this respect will be issued soon.

The first Shahi Snaan or the Holy dip will be on 12th April which is Somvati Amavasya, the second one will be on 14th April on the day of Baisakhi, and the third one will be on Poornima on 27th April.
