I found this interesting piece of trivia regarding Kumbh Mela. Sharing it…
The Kumbh Mela derives from Hindu mythology, which holds that gods and demons struggled over a pitcher, or kumbh, containing the drink of immortality. As the gods raced toward heaven, drops of the sacred nectar spilled out onto four locations on the river: Allahabad, Ujjaink, Nashik and Haridwar. Today, the Kumbh Mela is held every three years, rotating among the four cities, meaning that each hosts every 12 years.

Tucked in the foothills of the Himalayas, Haridwar is a challenging place to host tens of millions of people. The Kumbh Mela is conducted in the middle of the city, and many pilgrims insist on taking their dip in the holiest spot, known as Har Ki Pauri, which is roughly the size of three Olympic swimming pools.
Pyramids have always amazed me. Pyramids are built by different civilization Egyptians, Incas and Mayans.
I can possibly do some reading on pyramids and probably some day I’ll be able to visit each of them.
These are amazing pictures shot during Earth Hour 2009. Click on the images to switch on / off the light.
I especially liked view of Acropolis in Athens and the Eiffel Tower. Each shot is amazing in its own way.
