The 2019 Kumbh Mela began on Tuesday morning at Prayagraj with the holy Shahi Snan by the Sadhus belonging to the Shahi Clan. The Shahi Snan began at 4 am on Tuesday morning.
As a part of the Shahi Snan, sadhus belonging to 13 akhadas take a dip in the Sangam, confluence of three rivers, along the banks of which the Kumbh Mela takes place.
There is an order in which the Sadhus of the Shahi clan perform the holy ritual by taking a dip in the river — Ganges in case of the Prayagraj Kumbh Mela. According to the norms, no one is allowed to enter the holy river before the akhadas finish their Shahi Snans.
