Caption: Kumbh Mela festival. Pilgrims taking turns to bathe in the holy waters of the Shipra River during the Hindu festival of Kumbh Mela. This river flows through the holy city of Ujjain, in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. Every 12 years, millions of devout Hindus celebrate this month-long festival by bathing in the Shipra's holy waters. Hundreds of ashrams set up dusty, sprawling camps that stretch for miles. From the book 'What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets' by Peter Menzel and Faith D'Aluisio.
