Abstract

In 2013's Kumbh Mela at Allahabad, nearly 120 million people gathered over 55 days in a temporary city of 20 sq km. In this photo essay, Rohit Sinha captures the event, part of UNESCO's Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, while describing how the city is built and what keeps it together.
