Three rivers, Ganges, Yamuna and the invisible River Saraswati meet together here, creating a beautiful sight to the spectators. During the Kumbh Mela, which is celebrated here every 12 years, tourists and pilgrims from all over the country flock together, forming a human sea. Indira Gandhi, who was the dynamic Prime Minister of India, used to visit here and take a holy dip in the Sangam.
One of the myths associated with the place is that when Gods passed over here with a pitcher full of nectar, a few drops of the nectar fell down. So a bath in the Sangam is considered very auspicious, having the power to wash away all your sins, making you pure. Another belief is that Lord Brahma used to perform Prakrishta Yajna here. This is supposed to give Allahabad the name Prayag.
The very sight of the holy rivers is bound to make you awe at the spirituality of the place. There are boats to take you to the Sangam and once you reach the place, you will be spellbound with the beauty of the place. River Yamuna is deep and calm with greenish colored water, while River Ganges is frivolous with shallow and clear water. River Saraswati is believed to be underneath the water and not visible to the human eye.
Many of the devotees take a dip in the holy waters of the Sangam and perform Pujas. Beware of the pundits who help you perform the rituals, as they may charge you extra. During auspicious days a number of holy men and devotees take a dip in the Sangam. A lot of birds are also seen here and people buy chips and dry snacks to feed them. The divinity of the place is beyond description and its beauty is best experienced during the sun rise and the sun set.
- Visit the place in the morning or in the evening as the place is very hot during the afternoon.
- Bargain with the boatman and fix the price before you step into the boat.
- During the winter seasons you may see a lot of immigrant birds.
- Do not carry any of your valuable when you go for a ride in the boat. Better keep it in the vehicle or in lockers if they are available.

Holy place and beautiful scenery. Beware of fraudsters, they want to grab money by any means. Boat people may ask for huge money but they never get you to the rivercentre place at Sangam. So negotiate with them.
