Ghat of Makar Vahini Temple Haridwar. Kumbh is inscribed by the UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of humanity. Ganga, the national river of India, is a national identity element. During Kumbh, the water of Ganga at Haridwar turns into nectar. According to astrology, a holy dip in Ganga can undo the sins of many lives. The ghat outside the Makar Vahini Temple (of the crocodile-riding-goddess i.e. Ganga) established by Shankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti also has a nice prayer service every evening.
