Kumbha Yoga

Kumbha is meant a pot holding Amrita(*) which literally means "that which is immortal".
The myth of Kumbha is connected to churning of the Ocean of Milk.
Kumbha Yoga is happened every 12 years when Jupiter is in Aquarius.
One of four major spiritual sites is taken place - Haridwar, Prayag, Nasik and Ujjain in India.
There are other celebrations when Jupiter is in other fixed signs, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio.
The festival (holy bathing in Ganges) is till April 28th, 2010.
