Quote:There are four cities (Haridwar, Allahabad, Ujjain & Nasik) where these Maha Kumbh are held. Each one gets its Mahakumbh after a gap of 12 years. Nasik held Maha Kumbh in year 2003 last time. This would be BIG one again at Nasik attracting several million people. Below text is from wiki....
The next Kumbha Mela will be held at Nashik (Maharashtra) from 14 July to 25 September. The details of most auspicious days (bathing dates) in year 2015 during Nashik Kumbh Mela are
26 August 2015 (Wednesday): Shravan Shudha- First Snan
29 August 2015 (Saturday): Shravan Purnima - First Shahi Snan at Ram Kunda
13 September 2015 (Sunday): Bhadrapad Amavasya - Second Shahi Snan/ Main bathing day

25 September 2015 (Friday): Bhadrapad Shukla Dwadashi - Vaman Dwadashi Snan
BholeBaba, would you mind sharing how you planned your visit, did you work with a tour organizer, any tips. I plan to visit by myself. Not averse to roughing it a little, but I do love some comforts at the end of the day.

Quote:Ah I won't be of much use to you I am afraid. I decided to go like a day before I actually went, mainly because my excessively religious mother said she was going and I felt I should accompany her given the crowds et al. (Not that I really helped, she awoke at 4 am to bathe in the river while I was fast asleep). I was meant to stay at an Ashram but luckily a local Allahabadi friend intervened and I ended up staying at his house in the posh part of town. I would think that the 2015 mela at Nasik will be a much smaller affair than the 2013 Mahakumbh Mela which happens once in I don't know how many years. I might see you there.
Anyone know where exactly on the Godavari river yhe nathing will take place? I presume it will be beside Sir Nilakanteshwar Mahadera Temple. I have had a search for a offical map online but cant seen to find one.
