Mera Bharat Mahaan!

MahaKumbh Mela as
seen from space!

The world’s largest religious gathering, Kumbh Mela, was captured from space by India’s high resolution earth imaging satellite CartoSat-2. The images were captured on Wednesday and released today by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The black and white images from the satellite clearly show the Sangam, the confluence of three holy rivers: the Ganga, the Yamuna and a mythical third river, the Saraswati.
