Naked Hindu holy men, or Naga Sadhus, return to their camp after a dip at Sangam, the confluence of the Rivers Ganges, Yamuna and mythical Saraswati on the first day of the Maha Kumbh Mela, in Allahabad, India, Monday, Jan. 14, 2013. Millions of Hindu pilgrims are expected to take part in the large religious congregation of a period of over a month on the banks of Sangam during the Maha Kumbh Mela in January 2013, which falls every 12th year, where devotees wash themselves in the waters of the Ganges believing that it washes away their sins and ends the process of reincarnation.
