    Kumbh Mela – the largest public gathering and collective act of faith in the world

    Kumbh Mela – the largest public gathering and collective act of faith in the world

    This is interesting... Supposedly the largest gathering of humans in the world's history?

    More than 120 million Hindu devotees, as well as tourists, are expected to visit the north Indian city of Prayagraj over the next few weeks for the Kumbh Mela, a vast spiritual festival at the point where two sacred rivers, the Ganges and Yamuna, converge.

    As noted the event goes on for weeks (and some times longer) so they won't be all there at the same time. The 2013 Kumbh Mela held in Allahabad (which just changed its name to Prayagraj) also was said to boast 120 million attendees but IIRC the most there at one time was something like 30 million -- which is still a huge number.

    I'm always still in trouble again
