Admittedly one of the largest religious gatherings in the world, the Kumbh Mela 2019 is even bigger this time.

Expecting people from all parts of the country and the world to visit the unique congregation at the banks of river Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati, the administration has ensured a wide variety of cuisines to cater to different individuals.

A food hub has been set up in the mela grounds which will offer food choices from as many as 16 different states of India. Yummmmy!

This hub will provide breakfast to supper and various other delicacies for the comfort of the visitors.

You must try some of the local foods:

Tandoori Chai

What’s better than a cup of hot chai on a chilly winter morning after taking a holy dip at the Triveni Sangam? Well, instead of seeking an ordinary cup of tea, find the Raj Nandini tandoori chai stall. This place will serve you a version of kulhad chai which is earthen and extraordinary in taste. Don’t miss this tandoori chai!


A homegrown produce, Kandmool is a sweet and cool drum-like fruit that has a fleshy white interior and a rust-coloured exterior. You can find this fruit at the nearest roadside vendor at the mela grounds. A must-try!

Allahabadi Amrood

Your trip to Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj would be incomplete if you don’t dig your teeth into the deliciousness of the oh-so-famous red guavas. Popular as Allahabadi Amrood, they are juicy and flavourful.

Chaat and Samosa

Look for spots like Loknath lassi, Nirala’s chaat, Sulaki’s kachoris, and Hari ka chota samosa and satisfy those cravings with truckload of flavours.
