According to Hindu mythology, after Samudra manthan by Gods and Asuras (Demons), they got Amrit (Nector of immortality). This Amrit was stored in a Kumbh (pitcher). Then a fight started between both groups over the possession of the Kumbh (pitcher) containing Amrit. During this fight some drops of Amrit spilled over at four places on earth namely Prayagraj, Haridwar, Ujjain and Nashik. Commemorating this mythical event the Kumbh Mela is held four times every twelve years at these four places.
Hindu pilgrims come to these same four places at the banks of rivers in Prayagraj, Haridwar, Ujjain and Nashik, where they take a holy dip in the river and offer prayers to the God.
