Haridwar: Thousands of pilgrims have started
coming here for the last royal bath of the Mahakumbh Mela as
the three-month-long religious congregation draws to a close
on Wednesday.

Considering the huge rush of devotees and tourists,
traffic regulations are being put in place from today,
official sources said.

The fourth and last royal bath is on Wednesday while
devotees would take holy dip on the occasion of Baisakhi on
Tuesday too.
