Kumbh Mela, crossing bridges

February 11, 2013  -  Festivals

Temporary pontoon bridges were built especially for the Kumbh Mela to help pilgrims get across the Ganges and Yamuna rivers. Most pilgrims stayed on the side of the Yamuna river and had to cross the pontoon bridge or the main road bridge to get across the Yamuna river to where the sadhus resided and where the main bathing would take place.

Millions cross pontoon bridges to get to the other side of the river.
