The Kumbh Mela is held in rotation among four holy places: Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain, and Nasik. In 2010, the Kumbh Mela returned to Haridwar, where millions and millions of pilgrims come to participate. The Kumbh Mela draws an incredible spectrum of humanity: yogis from the Himalayas and Sikhs from the Punjab, peasants and businessmen, sannyasis and politicians. In Haridwar, the riverside steps at Har Ki Pauri, where Vishnu left his footprint and the Ganges leaves the Himalayas, provides the setting for the Mela.
