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.

I visited my friend Faizal Khan in Allahabad and I enjoyed the Sangam where the 3 Holy rivers Ganga, Yamuna, Saraswati River meet. There is also facility of boating in the waters of Yamuna. Incredible experience for me also Pandits are available for carrying out hindu rituals.

"A place worth visiting"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
There is so much attached to this place that one is awed by the span of two major rivers meeting at this place. Apart from haggling with the boat wallahs for the ride upto the middle, where there are platforms erected, it is an experience to face the Pandits to perform the rituals and yield to their demands. We were fortunate to watch hundreds of migratory birds, frolicking over the river water.

View of the two rivers flowing majestically is amazing and one can watch it for hours, sitting at the river bank. New road bridge over the river at distant horizon is another memorable view from the Sangam.

Peaceful place to spend the evening. Watching the sunset at sangam is amazing. One must go to sangam if he has come to Allahabad. The fort on sangam is a historic monument. Now it is a army base.

"Religious confluence"

  • 3.50/7
  • Posted Dec 30, 2014
Sangam is a place, one has to be extra cautious. This place is full of panda and touts otherwise. Apart from religious importance one can also joy the boat rides in the river. This place offers a nice scenery and Panorama to capture.

"No crowd nice to visit"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Nov 6, 2014
I reached here in the afternoon ,when there was no crowd. Three row of boats lying empty at the corner of the Yamuna river. During festival time ot Kumbh or Magh mela, you virtually rub your shoulders with the crown. View was very scenic with many birds flying over the boats. In front I could see Allahabad Fort, built by king Akbar.

"An excellent place, worth the visit"

  • Posted Sep 14, 2014
Peoples should visit Sangam and can see Lord Hanuman in a sleeping position. If you visit Allahabad and don't see the Sangam, your visit isn't worth it.
