Kumbh Mela is the most spiritual festival of Ujjain and the legends behind the origin of Kumbh Mela celebrated is a legendary story. Once God and demons stir the milky ocean to acquire immortality (the kumbh of nector). It take 12 days to search the kumbh of nector in the heaven (1 day of gods is equal to the 1 year of the humans). At the same time, in the struggle (God and demons) of chasing the nectar of immortality, some drop of nectar fell on this place (Haridwar, Allahabad, Nashik and Ujjain); it makes these cities sacred. So the Kumbh Mela is held at each of these four places after every 12 years in rotation.

According to astrologers, the place of Kumbh Mela is depends upon the location of Sun, Moon, and Jupiter in different zodiac signs. It takes place at Ujjain when Jupiter is in Leo and Sun is in Aries, or when all three are in Libra in Vrishchik month.

During the Kumbh Mela celebration at Ujjain millions of spiritual devotees and
