Kumbh Mela: World's biggest festival

Once in every 12 years Kumbh Mela is celebrated in Triyambakeshwar Jyotirlinga temple situated in holy town of Trimbakeshwar in Nashik.
According to Hindu mythology, Lord Vishnu flew from earth to heaven with a pot of nectar, spilling drops of nectar at four different places- Haridwar, Nashik, Ujjain and Allahabad.
Celebration of Kumbh Mela depends on the position of Jupiter (Brhaspati) and the sun. When the Jupiter and the sun falls on the zodiac sign Leo or 'Sinhastha' (as referred to in Sanskrit), it is observed in Nashik.
