A child crosses a dried-out riverbed in Allahabad in northern India, 25 October 2013. Allahabad is located in the state of Uttar Pradesh where the Ganges meets the Yamuna, two of Hinduism's sacred rivers, between Agra and Varanasi, on the road from New Delhi to Calcutta. The great Maha Kumbh Mela pilgrimage takes place in India every 12 years in the city of Allahabad. The Kumbh Mela of Allahabad is held where the Ganges meets the Yamuna and Saraswati, a mythological river in Hinduism, and in the surrounding area. Nearly the entire site is located in the dried-out riverbed of the Ganges, during the period of the year when the waters are at their lowest point (from January to March). © Sanjay Kanojia /AFP
