2010-02-07 Kumbh Peshwai Niranjini Akahara
Akhara processions during the Kumbh have great public attraction. Saints of different Akharas gather at one point and proceed to their camps (near Har-ki-Pauri) on vehicles, horses, elephants and chariots, carrying 30ft long dharma dhvaja. They are accompanied by bands and jhankies. These processions are called Peshwai and about 10 such processions are organised during the Kumbh.
