The Kumbh Mela will be held in 2021 in Haridwar, a religious event that will be attended by millions of devotees around the world. The Kumbh Mela is held at one of the four holy pilgrimage destinations, Haridwar, Nashik, Allahabad, and Ujjain, every 12 years by rotation. The dates for a pilgrimage to the Kumbh Mela are determined according to the Vikram Samvat calendar. At the Kumbh Mela Haridwar, millions of people will gather to take a dip in the holy River Ganges. The dates for the Kumbh Mela 2021 have been announced. Kumbh Mela 2021 will begin on 14th January, on the auspicious occasion of Makar Sankranti. The first Shahi Snan will take place on 11th March, and the second and third ones on 12 and 14th April respectively. The fourth Shahi Snan will be held on 27th April, and on the same day, the Haridwar Kumbh Mela 2021 will come to an end.
But, Due to the pandemic, the state government has decided to limit the Kumbh this year to 30 days. Officers in charge of the Kumbh Mela said that those who attend the religious congregation should do prior registration at a portal and should have a COVID-19 negative report. Kumbh Mela is not only a religious pilgrimage, but one of the largest mass gatherings at one place.
