A mythological story behind the kumbh celebration is that during samudra manthan when Lord Vishnu pouring Amrita to a kalash (or kumbh), few drops of Amrita felt down on earth at four places and Allahabad is one of them. Other three are – Haridwar, Nasik & Ujjain. But the triveni Sangam is at Allahabad where the main festival is being celebrated. Kumbh has been included in the UNESCO’s Representative List of 'Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity' of which every Indian should be proud off.
