The Kumbh camps are designed and set up for each of the Kumbh Melas, to accommodate the mass influx of pilgrims for the event. A recurring project undertaken for a Spiritual Organization since 2004, temporary premises were set up for the Ujjain Kumbh in 2016.
With each passing year – as the organization grows – the camp size, requirements and detailing have grown too. The largest camp to date, the design for the Simhastha Kumbh 2016 at Ujjain was based on a Rajasthani Architecture theme. The campus boundary was designed to resemble a Rajasthani fortress; the Datt Sadan had the look of a Rajasthani Palace, achieved using intricate thermocol work made to resemble stone carvings, and all the other residential blocks were decorated with rich paintings typically found in traditional Rajasthani towns.
With a built-up area of about 2.5 lakh sq.ft. and landscaped gardens with fountains covering about 1 lakh sq.ft, the camp comprised of a Spiritual & Cultural Programs Tent to seat about 10,000 people at a time, a Dining Tent that fed about 15,000 people per meal, and various residential complexes with cottages of different sizes & capacities. The camp was equipped with about 300 toilets with the required water supply and drainage network.
