Haridwar kumbh mela

Ideally, when Devguru Jupiter completes its cycle through 12 zodiac signs and again enters the Aquarius sign, and with the Sun entering the Aries sign, the auspicious Yoga of “Kumbh Mahaparva” is formed in Haridwar. According to the astrological calculations for this Kumbh, Jupiter will complete this cycle in 11 years and enter the Aquarius sign in 2021. By the time the Sun enters Aries in 2022, Jupiter will have entered Pisces. Jupiter will be available in Aquarius and the Sun in Aries in 2021. Therefore, “Haridwar Kumbh Mahaparva Mela” will be organized in the year 2021.
