Women on their way to the gathering point the day before they are due to bathe. tens of millions of people gathered for the February 15 special date. Most of whom walked many miles from the outer camps to get to the congregation point and waited all night so that they could be in the ganges when their Sadhus were bathing also. Allahabad in northern india is cold during the winter and most of the gatherers were clothed only in cotton. Maha Kumbh Mela, Allahabad India
