Kumbh Mela takes place when the planet Jupiter enters Aquarius and the Sun enters Aries. This pilgrimage occurs four times every twelve years. There is a powerful impact when millions of people come together to engage in the collective bathing ritual.

why are they praying?

I'm guessing the need to believe in things bigger than themselves is important to some, whether we think they're misguided or not is immaterial.
