Kumbh Mela Part IV: Sadhus on the march

Somavati Amavasya occurs when a new moon falls on a Monday.  On this auspiciousness day Hindus believe that a dip in a holy river will have especially good karmic results.  During a Kumbh Mela this auspiciousness is amplified.  The stream of Sadhus toward Hari Ki Pauri Ghat inching toward their sacred bath, aboard trucks, in cars, on horses, on camels, and by foot, lasted most of the day.
