Where did you watch this movie?

This silent, short film sheds light on the famous Hindu bathing festival called the Kumbha Mela, a mass Hindu pilgrimage of faith in which Hindus gather to bathe in a sacred river. It is considered to be the largest peaceful gathering in the world where around 100 million people gather to cleanse and purify themselves. It is believed in Hinduism that drops of nectar fell from the kumbha carried by gods after the sea was churned. Bathing in the confluence (Sangam) of the Ganges and the Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati at Allahabad is thought to cleanse a person of all sin, and this silent video captures the religious fervour and devotional atmosphere of this grand event.
