Photographer's Note

Nagas gathering to return to their Akharas after a dawn dip in the holy sangam. The Kumbha Mela at Allahabad has been held every 12 years since 3464 BC. In 2001 some 70 million pilgrims made their way to the 6-week long gathering, the holiest in all of Hinduism. Amazing how a spectacle of such size and scope remains largely unknown in the West.
