Hasta el 4 de marzo tendrá lugar el festival Kumbh Mela, en la ciudad de Allahabad, en el norte de la India, un lugar en donde se cruzan el Gange y el Yamuna, dos ríos considerados como sagrados por el hinduismo. Se trata de una de las concentraciones religiosas más grandes del mundo y se espera que se reúnan más de 100 millones de peregrinos este año. El festival Kumbh Mela fue incluido en 2017 por la UNESCO en la lista del patrimonio inmaterial cultural.
