Hindu man with large Tilaka (ritual marking on forehead), long hair and beard dreadlocks, at the Kumbh Mela 2013 Hindu festival near Allahabad (India).­

I believe this Tilaka type is from a Ramanuji sect of Southern India.­ If you can identify it more accurately, please post a Comment!

Kumbh Mela is the largest festival on Earth, taking place once every 12 years, with more than 50 million Hindu pilgrims gathering to pray and bathe in the holy Ganges river.­
