There have been large events organised all over the world. But did you know the largest event ever, attracted 120 million people and was held in 2013?
Amazing, right?
Do you know where we need to travel to watch this event taking place?
It is indeed the Kumbh Mela festival in India.
The Kumbh Mela gathering of 2013 was the largest peaceful gathering of people ever recorded. This Hindu ceremony is celebrated four times out of each 12-year period.
The site of each gathering rotates between the four rivers that are held sacred by those of the Hindu faith, and draws people from all types of lifestyles to celebrate their faith. Among those who attend are sadhus: Holy men who undergo intense physical trials and remain naked year-round.
The 2013 gathering at Kumbh Mela was so massive that it was considered high-risk by the local healthcare system.
