About Sangam

Triveni Sangam, located at a distance of 7 km from the Civil Lines is one of the most famous tourist attractions of the city. It is the confluence of the three rivers Ganges, Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati.   It is also believed to be the same spot where the drops of holy nectar fell.

It is the holiest point in Allahabad and a dip in the Triveni is believed to free one, of all sins. Tourists visiting Sangam can hire boats to take a dip into this holy water. Boats are available at the ghat immediately to the east of the fort. This Sangam is extremely crowded during the Kumbha and Ardh Kumbha Melas.

Boats are available at INR30.05 per visitor. The official prices of the boat ranges from INR99.58 to INR119.77. However at peak season prices rises to INR 249.41.

"A religious place worth to visit once" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
It is now not that Sangam as it was during 1947 to 1968, now the entire scenario is different, a lot of development are there but we should remember it is a pilgrimage place worth to visit once to see the natures wonder. You should not carry luggage, valuables and more money. Everywhere, you have to bargain. To enjoy boat trip, first settle for coast and avoid hiring of a boat alone. Carry dry eatables and water.

It is a holy place with very cold climate. The Sangam is situated behind Allahabad fort, there are very big Hanuman temples located around the place.

This was my best experience in life. The sangam looks very beautiful at time of sunrise and sunset. We took bath in the holy Ganga. An awesome feeling.

"Must visit the Sangam!"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted May 10, 2014
It is basically the confluence of Ganga and Yamuna rivers and the mythological river of Saraswati. I would recommend that you take a boat to the confluence point. Just make sure you don't go in the middle of summer! Please avoid random sadhus and guides and don't dish out random cash in the name of God.

"Confluence, really?"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted Apr 8, 2014
Disclaimer: Review not for the devouts.

Definitely a once in a lifetime visit, to see why this place draws such a huge crowd year after year, season after season. Once of the places for the Maha Kumbh, it is the location where three of the holy rivers of India confluence. The confluence itself is a very tricky place, the position being shifted (??) and supposedly only the Pandits know how to find it. Shady enough? Be careful of performing unwary pujas, as they may charge you a fortune afterwards.

"Very dirty and full of cheaters"

  • 1.00/7
  • Posted Mar 29, 2014
Try to stay away from Purohits; and even the boatmen looted us. We really fooled by them almost 1500 lost for nothing. The place is very dirty. I had never visited such a dirty place before in my life.
