Of that Amrit, few drops fall in the earth at four places- Prayag, Nasik, Haridwar, Ujjain. As they fall on these places, these places got some mystical power. Thus to gain some of the good effects of this mystical power, people come and gather at these four places. As long as remember, this has been practised for a long period of time.
