Note: The boat ride is subject to availability and will not be available on bathing dates & a day prior to the bathing date.
Later, set course on a gentle paced walk through the world’s largest temporary, tented city where the Akharas have their presence. An Akhara is a place of practice with facilities for boarding, lodging and training on the path of spiritual enlightenment. The Juna Akhara, with over 400,000 sanyasis is perhaps one of the largest sects present at the Kumbh Mela. They are also considered to be the most fascinating.
The sadhus are divided into four major categories – Nagas (Sanyasis), Vairagi (Mundies), Udasi and Nirmala (Nanak Sahi). These four categories are then further organized into different Akharas. There exists a predetermined order which the various Akharas follow during the Shahi procession on the specific bathing days.
