In this Feb. 9, 2013 file photo, thousands of Indian Hindu devotees walk across a pontoon bridge at Sangam, before bathing at the confluence of the Ganges, Yamuna and mythical Saraswati River, during the Maha Kumbh festival, in Allahabad, India. Millions of Hindu pilgrims are attending the Maha Kumbh festival, which is one of the world's largest religious gatherings that lasts 55 days and falls every 12 years. During the festival pilgrims bathe in the holy Ganges River in a ritual they believe can wash away their sins.(AP Photo/Kevin Frayer, File) less
