hindu pilgrim riding camel in street - kumbh mela 2013 (india)

Some Hindu pilgrims come from very far riding their animals.­ This man and his two camels came all the way from Rajasthan.­

It was really quite a sight, seeing those tall camels walking slowly and silently in the foggy streets of the festival ground.­
