One of the most important bathing dates during the Haridwar Kumbha mela 2010 is the Mesha Sankranti Shahi Snan, which will take place on April 14, 2010
Mesha Sankranti marks the beginning of the Sun’s transition from Mesha to Vrishabha or from Aries to Taurus. There are 12 Sankranthis in a Hindu Solar Calendar and Meshan Sankranti is the first in one cycle.
Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to take a holy dip at Haridwar on the day. This is last most important bathing day during the Haridwar Kumbha Mela 2010.
