Special Cover on Ujjain Darshan – 9th May 2016.

The second Shahi Snan (Royal Bath) of month-long Simhastha Kumbh mela began on 9th May 2016 (Shukla/Akshey Tritya). Traditions vis-à-vis Shahi Snan during Simhastha at Ujjain are still intact. Observing the same traditions, Shaivite Akharas had the first opportunity to take the holy dip in Kshipra river. The holy dip taken by Naga Sadhus chanting Har Har Mahadev brought to light the unique and unparalleled culture of India. According to myth, holy dip in Kshipra river is very important during this festival.

On the occasion of second Shahi Snan at Simhastha Kumbh mela, Ujjain a Special Cover was released by Shri T. Murty, Member (Operations), Department of Posts, Shri M. E. Haque, Chief Postmaster General, M. P. Circle and other dignitaries on ‘Ujjain Darshan’ on 9th May 2016 at Ujjain.
