THE MAKING OF THE TENTED CITY#2
The drying streams of the the rivers Ganges & Yamuna create huge landmasses which forms the platform on which the tented city of Magh/Kumbh mela comes up every year during month of January.However the challenge is to connect different landmasses coming up between the river stream and give the tented city a unified look.Temporary bridges made of prefabricated metal structure-pontoons,act as arteries of this mega event.Each pontoon weighs around 5,500 kgs. The pontoon bridge can be as long as 800 mts and may use 160-165 pontoons.These pontoon bridges make commuting a breeze in the mela.
