Huge Crowd of Hindu pilgrims gathered at the Sangam, on the bank of the Ganges river, to take the holy bath at the Kumbh Mela 2013 Hindu festival near Allahabad (India)

Looks amazing when viewed in high-resolution.

Small boats are patrolling the safety fence, in case a pilgrim would accidentally get swept away by the river current, as most of the Hindu pilgrims can't swim!

This was January 27 (a full-moon night, called Paush Purnima), one of the most auspicious days for taking the holy bath.

The Triveni Sangam is the confluence of the Yamuna and the Ganga (Ganges) rivers, and this is the holiest place to take the ritual baths during the Kumbh Mela.

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.
