INDIA-RELIGION-KUMBH MELA

A Devotee, one of thousands, offers a prayer to the sun god as he pours water from a vase while taking a dip at the Sangham, or confluence of the Yamuna and Ganges river during the Kumbh Mela celebration in Allahabad on January 13, 2013. The Kumbh Mela in northern India, starting January 13 and stretching over 55 days, attracts ash-covered holy men who run into the frigid waters, a smattering of international celebrities, as well as millions upon millions of ordinary Indians to Allahabad, at the confluence of the rivers Yamuna and Ganges.
