About Sangam

52%
voted as clean

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.

"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.

Excellent spot in whole world. At Sangam you can see the 2 river meets and can easily see the different colours of River Ganga and Yamuna. Every year the place hosted one of the biggest religious gathering. Excellent place to visit.

"Nice place to view all the three rivers"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted Feb 29, 2016
Visited there a few months back. Appears as the only place where you can see waters of three different colours meeting together and then finally mixing to give a 4 th different colour. Was mesmerised with the beauty of sunset here. The visit was paisa vasool, do visit when in Allahabad. Go there and see the real India on shore.

"Triveni Sangam - Auspicious Day Bathing"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Feb 28, 2016
Prayag is the holy place on the earth, where the River Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati rivers confluence point. It is the place where the pilgrims take holy bath on all days and lakhs of people take a holy dip on auspicious days. Needs to develop some infrastructure at the sangam. No changing rooms are available.

"Triveni Sangam where Ganga, Yamuna and underneath Saraswati meet"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted Jan 26, 2016
Pithru Tharpanam are done on shore. But they will force you to take a bath at Sangam and start the rituals. Charges are Rs. 150 on a big boat to Rs. 500 for a private boat. A stage is provided near the Sangam and you have to pay Rs. 10 as fee for using the same.
