Luxury Tents At The Kumbh Mela Are Fancier Than You'll Ever Be

It's time for a 5-star pilgrimage.

Kumbh Mela has begun. The world’s largest human gathering where lakhs of Hindus have converged at Prayagraj in Uttar Pradesh to celebrate the month-long festival. On the very first day, over 16 lakh pilgrims took the holy dip at Sangam. But guess what this year’ snazziest attraction is? No, we aren’t talking about the babas. It’s the five-star luxury tents that have been creating a lot of buzz.

Just like any other five-star hotel rooms, the tents come in deluxe, luxury & suite categories. They offer a range of facilities & services 24/7 security, laundry, hawan area, first aid and even a personalised section of Ganga ghat. Visitors have to shell out anywhere between Rs 12,000 to Rs 33,000 for a night’s stay.
