Kumbh: A festival unique to Harmal

A unique festival called Somavati/ Kumbh is held in Harmal village once in 4 to 5 years, depending on ‘mahurat’. Here, it is believed that the water from River Ganges meets the sea on this ‘mahurat’, and is thus considered an auspicious event.

People from the various villages believe in this confluence of the river meeting the sea, and walk in a procession carrying the idol of Ravalnath in a palanquin accompanied by the holy Tarangas.

The devotees then bathe in the river with a belief that their sins are now washed away with the holy dip.
