Triveni Sangam, Allahabad

In Hindu tradition Triveni Sangam is the "confluence" of three rivers-Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati. It’s a place of religious importance and the site for historic Kumbh Mela held every 12 years, over the years it has also been the site of immersion of ashes of several national leaders, including Mahatma Gandhi in 1948.The Ganga weaves her way down from the Himalayas from Gangotri, Yamuna also begins her journey in the Himalayas, at Yamunotri, and passes through Mathura and Brindavan. Saraswati arrives at Allahabad from god alone knows where, for she is an underground river, who remains unseen to mankind, making her presence felt at certain, extremely special places.
