Mahakumbh- Ek Rahasaya, Ek Kahani! aka Maha Kumbh is Indian Hindi supernatural, mytho-thriller television show and produced and directed by Arvind Babbal. It stars Gautam Rode and Payal Rajput in lead roles. It ran for 60 episodes.

Mahakumbh- Ek Rahasaya, Ek Kahani! is a thriller based story in the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh about a boy who possesses supernatural powers. Unaware of the gift as a child, as he grows older, his powers start showing. A girl named Maya starts liking Rudra. Meanwhile Rudra is one of the seven protectors of Amrit which appears every 144 years during Mahakumbh . His father, Shivanand (Manish Wadhwa) is one of the leading Garudas.

The story begins with Baby Rudra visiting the Mahakumbh with his father. Then the bridge to Ganga is blown up as a plan of Balivesh, one of the leading priests of Mahakumbh, who has pledged his allegiance to the Naga clan. The Naga clan and the Garuda Clan have been battling for Amrit, the elixir of life every Mahakumbh. This has led to animosity between the two clans.

Rudra’s father is kidnapped by a man named Mr. Greyerson and brought to a foreign country where he is tortured and probed for the secret of Amrit. He had been exchanging notes with Charles for the purpose of understanding the secret of Amrita scientifically. Meanwhile, Rudra is thrown into water due to the impact of the blast. He is saved by Udiya Baba (Robin Pal), who takes him to Mai Mui (Seema Biswas).

He is brought up by Mai Mui, but is constantly hunted by Balivesh and Khoye Paye Pandey ( Vineet Kumar). On the eve of Dussehra, he is attacked by Khoye Paye Pandey, under the instructions of Balivesh. The entire episode is eavesdropped by Oriya Baba, who tries to save Rudra who is on a chariot, getting ready to shoot an arrow at Ravana’s effigy. The bomb has been planted in the chariot.

When Udiya Baba tries to save Rudra, the bomb explodes, but Rudra escapes unhurt. The burning effigy falls over Oriya Baba and he is badly hurt. Rudra brings him out of the fire miraculously. Oriya Baba is treated, but does not have long to live. He pleads Rudra to bring his wife for a final meeting. Rudra brings his wife and Udiya Baba passes away peacefully. However, Rudra realises that the Garuda Birthmark on his back is responsible for danger over his loved ones. He tries to peel it away with his rope, but is stopped by Mai Mui.
