Main Bathing Dates for Ujjain Kumbh Parva 2016

Uniqueness of ‘Simhastha Parva’ (Kumbha Mela) at Ujjain

        Bathing in the Shipra River is one special feature of ‘Simhastha Parva’. The Kumbha Mela will be held at Ujjain from 22 April 2016 to 21 May 2016. The ritual of Shahi Snan will be conducting on 22 April 2016, a day of full moon (Poornima) as per lunar calendar. There are going to be 3 Rajyogi (Imperial) Snans in the Simhastha Kumbhaparva to be held in Ujjain in April 2016. These dates of the imperial baths were decided in the meeting of Akhil Bharatiya Akhada Parishad held on 14th December 2015. As this meeting deciding about the dates could not be held earlier it was not possible to fix the dates of the important events like Rajyogi Snan and Peshavai. The president of the Akhada Parishad Shrimahant Narendragiri Maharaj had discussion with officer in charge Mr. Avinash Lawaniya on 13th April in this regard. On the occasion of Kumbh Mela the divinity and spiritual aroma of Ujjain meets its highest peak when not only crores of devotees, but Deities, Saints and thirty-three crore ‘Teerthas’ will also be present. All this is unique.

Bathing, donating, chanting, performing rites during ‘Simhastha Parva’ begets infinite merits !
