Triveni Sangam

The most sacred spot in Allahabad, Triveni Sangam is the confluence of three holy rivers: Ganga (Ganges), Yamuna and Saraswati.

According to Hindu mythology, it is believed that a dip in this confluence makes one free from all the sins. A major draw is Magha Mela (festival), which falls during January-February. On this occasion, a large number of devotees come here for a holy dip.

It is also considered sacred to bathe here during Kumbh Mela, a festival celebrated once in every 12 years.
