Haridwar, February 20, 2021: In the wake of the outbreak of Corona virus epidemic, the Mahakumbh to be held in Haridwar has been shortened. The Maha Kumbh will be held from April 1 to April 28 instead of April 30. Guidelines have also been issued by the Central Government and the State Government. The administration has been instructed to strictly follow these guidelines.
Four royal baths have been declared at the Kumbh Mela to be held in Haridwar in the year 2021. In which a bath for Mahashivratri will commence on 11 March 2021, Chaitra Amavasya i.e. Somvati Amavasya on 12 April 2021, Baishakhi Kumbh bath on 14 April 2021, and Chaitra Purnima on 27 April 2021. Apart from these, there will also be other festive baths.
The spiritual capital Haridwar is preparing to welcome millions of saints and devotees for the Maha Kumbh. Dharmanagri is being decorated. It is a great challenge to make the world’s biggest religious event in the Corona period take place successfully and due to this, Kumbh will be organized for 28 days only i.e. from 1 April to 28 April.
Right now the notifications for the Mahakumbh are being awaited. The notification does not have any effect on spiritual events, but after the notification, the arrangements made by the administration may be carried out with grandeur. This time however due to the short duration of Kumbh, the grandeur will definitely fade. Usually, Kumbh, which is for 4 months, will be held for just 28 days this time.
