India’s space agency ISRO is taking satellite pictures of the Kumbh baths at Haridwar and Rishikesh, a step that will help in the better conduct of the Kumbh mela in the future.

Kumbh mela official Anand Bardhan said the pictures of Baisakhi bath on Tuesday and the last royal bath on Wednesday are being taken through the National Remote Sensing Centre.

The pictures taken by ISRO would help in effective conduct of Kumbh melas in future, he added.
