Nagababa. Prayag. Uttar Pradesh
A Naga Baba from the Juna Akhara during his holy bath on January 19th In Prayag during the Ardh Khumbh Mela last month.
You can spot the Trishul in his right hand. One of the most prominent Sadhu sects, the Juna Akhara, consists of the warrior-ascetics or Nagas (the naked). They smear their bodies with holy ash and sport long matted hair, symbolic of their devotion to Lord Shiva, generally known as the God of destruction, but to Sadhus better known as the Lord of Yoga.
