The main day of bathing has been held at India's Kumbh Mela, with millions of pilgrims already taking a dip at the confluence of the Ganges and Yamuna.

Hindus believe a festival dip at Sangam - where the rivers meet - will cleanse sins and help bring salvation.

The BBC's Sanjoy Majumder visited the scene as the sun set on Sunday.
