Sangam

In Hindu tradition Triveni Sangam is the "confluence" of three rivers. Sangama is the Sanskrit word for confluence. The point of confluence is a sacred place for Hindus. A bath here is said to flush away all of one's sins and free one from the cycle of rebirth.

A unique spiritual experience, divine in fact

There is only one thing more peaceful than staying at the ghats of the holy river Ganges, staying at the confluence(Sangam) of the Ganga,the Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati rivers. Apart from the famous Kumbh Mela (12 yearly fest) and the Ardh Kumbh Mela (Half Kumbh) every year in the Hindi calendar month of Magh(falls around mid January-February), a Magh mela is held.This holy fair has a scale comparable to any festival on this lovely green planet. During this month long fest around millions camp on the banks for a month and on some very important dates one might witness some 30-40 million devotees taking the holy dip simultaneously.Spiritual leaders camping and giving sermons is a common sight. The administration takes good care of all basic amenities possible for a gathering so big,for a duration so long. Visit this place as, to see is to believe.

Peaceful atmosphere with beautiful view

Sangam is known as a holy place in Indian scriptures and once you arrive there, you can feel the same in the atmosphere. During the winters, one can also witness the migratory sea-gulls which are majestic. The serene boat ride through the Yamuna river to the meeting point with the Ganges will give you hope and peace. Just be careful not to indulge with some of the greedy pandits who will perform puja for you and demand unjustified amounts of money.Take a balance pair of clothes with you which you will need after your holy dip in the Ganga river.

Peaceful

Spiritual place where 3 rivers meet that hold importance and make different from other locations . Best part which I have heard from people that saraswati Nadi is invisible and you can see in the well which is in fort of Akbar near akshay vrat. So it hold importance and here we have kumbh.
