11 Reasons Why You Must Visit Simhastha Before You Die

Simhastha is a grand holy celebration in India. It is believed that Gods and demons competed against each other during 'churning of the ocean' to taste the divine nectar of immortality in the Simhastha Kumbh. During this battle, drops of the precious nectar fell into four places- Haridwar, Prayag (Allahabad), Nashik and Ujjain.

Simhastha is conducted once every 12 years at these four places to cherish the sacred event of immortality. The river containing this divine nectar named Kshipra is considered the enhancer of life. This grand fest is attended by millions of devotees around the world. Simhastha 2016 will start on 22nd of April and end on 21st of May.
