While the Kumbh Meal is slightly over a month away, a picture is making rounds on social media which claims to be of Uttar Pradesh Government’s preparation for upcoming Kumbh Mela starting from January 15th.
The picture is surfaced on Facebook and Twitter with the text that read: जी नही!
ये सऊदी अरब का दृश्य नही….
बल्कि योगी सरकार द्वारा कुम्भ मेले की तैयारी का एक दृश्य है।👇 जय हो योगी सरकार की
(Translation: “No, this is not a view from Saudi Arabia, but it’s Yogi Government’s preparation for Kumbh Mela, Hail Yogi Government”)
When we saw this picture multiple times on social media and read the claims attached with it, we decided to fact-check the viral picture.
When NewsMobile put the image thought Google Reverse Image search, we found that the picture was actually from Saudi Arabia.
The picture is of the Great Mosque of Mecca.
Meanwhile, the same picture was posted in a Facebook post in August.
