 Q:   Ask a Question about The significance of Kumbh Mela and exploring Mathura and Vrindavan       
The significance of Kumbh Mela and exploring Mathura and Vrindavan India is the land of Gods. From centuries people have known India for its rituals and its rich history.

The Kumbh Mela marking the history of India is celebrated every 12 years at any of the holy places i.e. Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain and Nasik.

When the Gods and the Satans agreed to work together by churning milk and honey to obtain purity and then share it equally among them, the demons cheated on the agreement and ran away with the Kumbh meaning "pot" of honey and milk and the God's ran after them.

It is believed that in the midst of this fight some of the drops fell on Earth at these 4 holy places namely Allahabad, Nasik, Haridwar and Ujjain. Marking the significance of this, a Mela, meaning "fair" is organized every 12 years and millions of people gather to be a part of th is Mela in a hope that the God's would bestow their blessings upon them.

Vrindavan was known in ancient times as the city, where once Lord Krishna spent his childhood playing. Vrindavan is also known for the meeting place of Lord Krishna and her muse Radha.

This is the land where their love blossomed. It is a sacred place for the much known fact that Lord Krishna lived here, but also as people still feel his presence in each and every thing that is in Vrindavan.

It is believed that Lord Krishna still visits the temple to give his blessings to his devotees and to remind the evil souls of his powers to destroy any ill fate being visited upon on his devotees. It is 15km from Mathura.

Mathura, located on the banks of river Yamuna was the birth place of Lord Krishna. For Hindus Mathura is one of the holiest places, like Mecca is for the Muslims.

It has the maximum number of temples. Mathura has the scent of Lord Krishna in every ghat, temple, house, shop. It has holy vibes and is one of the most beautiful places to visit as everything in Mathura has some story to tell about the History and the Gods.
