Haridwar: As thousands of pilgrims took dip in the river Ganga to cleanse them of their sins on the occasion of Makar Sankranti in Maha Kumbh that commenced here today, Delhiites are making a beeline to the largest religious congregation on earth to take the holy bath.

Cars bearing Delhi registration plates and packed with people could be seen speeding down the NH-72, connecting Dehradun and Haridwar with the national capital.
Even those from the National Capital Region are thronging `Har Ki Pauri`, the main ghat of the river Ganga, to take the holy bath.
"We left at about six in the morning and reached here by about 10:30 am. We are originally from Haridwar and hence could not miss taking a dip in the Kumbh.
