The largest ever gathering of humanity in a single place in all of history, Maha Kumbh Mela really is an incredible sight to behold. It is a spiritual event of epic proportions which takes place every 12 years in the city of Allahabad in Northern India. Lakshmi Kutir is the perfect launchpad to access this awe-inspiring event.
This luxury tented camp allows you to connect with the spiritual and holistic aspects of the Maha Kumbh. Secured around the clock by trained security personnel, the camp is spectacularly located at the highest point of the Maha Kumbh, directly in line with the Sangamor main bathing area overlooking the Akharas of various Sadhus and religious personages.
The camp's host is a spiritual Sadhak and a Kumbh specialist, and there is a specialist Ayurveda Acharya also on hand. The Ayurveda spa provides guests with therapies, massages, yoga and treatments of ancient Indian methods. To add to this, an astrologer also stays at the luxury camp and is happy to assist guests with a telescope on a special viewing terrace.
There will be exclusive excursions into the very heart and soul of the Maha Kumbh, providing guests with opportunities for photography and one-on-one interactions with sadhus and seers, as well as to just immerse themselves in a sea of fervent devotees and soak up the mystical and marvellous energy and power of faith.
