About Triveni Sangam Prayag, Allahabad

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.

  • Is a nice place for a holy dip in the rivers joining point. but beware of the people ready. to loot you with high cost of boating and bathing charges better go by walk to the bathing area then by boat. Don't spend money on coconuts or rituals on the boats it's fake and not worthy as the coconuts are reused.

  • Triveni Sangam also called as Prayag is the confluence of the rwo sacred rivers of India viz The Yamuna and The Ganges. Mixing of two is demarcated vividly and prominently with two different colours of water i.e blue for Yamuna and grey for Ganges. It's a holy place as per Hindu mythology and people from every corner of India come to have a holy dip here. Post mortal rituals like Pinda dan etc are also done here. Purna Kumbh and ardha Kumbha mela is organised here every twelve and six years respectively in turn with other places like Ujjain and Hardwar. Otherwise also its a nice place with scenic beauty and refreshing breezes and boat ride upto the Sangam point. Siberian migratory birds assembles here in every winter. Allahabad fort is situated in Sangam. Its only 15 to 20 minutes from nearest railway station Allahabad. Lot of hotels,ashrams,guest houses etc are available for staying overnight. I liked the place.

  • If there's heaven in Prayag,it's at Sangam.Peaceful place to spend time.Fleet of Siberian birds come every year in the winters...

  • A good and a clean place. If you visit this place you must go for a boat ride. The sensational breeze and the magnificent scenic beauty during evening is awesome.

  • Great place for peace of mind It's a great place for karmakanda and pinda pradan
