Prayagraj which is a city in Uttar Pradesh is all gearing up for Mahakumbh in 2025. The city will be hosting Maha Kumbh Mela in the year 2025 which is attended by thousands of pilgrims from across the world.
As per the latest reports, the domestic airport of Prayagraj will soon be converted to an international airport.
As per the state government reports, Prayagraj Airport has secured 13th position amongst all domestic airports in India.
This position has made it easy to expand the current domestic airport to an international one before the 2025 Maha Kumbh.
The Mahakumbh Mela is celebrated every 12 years and it is said to be the largest peaceful gathering in the country.
The festival is observed in four main pilgrimage sites – Prayagraj, Haridwar, Nashik and Ujjain. The last Mahakumbh Mela was held in 2013 in Prayagraj and was attended by over 120 million authorities.
So big is the festival that it has found itself a place on UNESCO’s Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity!
Prayagraj airport, as an international airport, would mean an easier commute for visitors coming in from places outside India.
