the huge junction of boats oveloaded with devotees at sangam ghat for kumbh snaan (scared bath).
NAGAS (saint) are one of the main attraction of kumb ...

KUMB - An auspicious gathering, Kumb Mela is one of the most fairs in India where devotees from across the globe come to attain spritual clarity & wash off sins in the ritual bathing at the Triveni Sangam.
K U M B - An auspicious gathering,
Triveni Sangam Ghat .
6 pm we reached at Prayagraj (Allahabad) Nani Railway Station, it was cold and warm as well because the crowd’s energy level was so high, each and every person present out there or was about to arrive, had only one thing in mind that they would want to experience the sacred gathering of Ardh KUMB and celebrate it.
by the time me and my family came out from the railway station we checked almost each online hotel portal and tariff was pretty high...
my brother went to a tea stall and there he saw hand written room available advertisement (Room available Only Rs 1500 for a day) and contact number was also mentioned there...
there were 5-6 tea stalls straight in that line and all had that local handwritten room available advertisement displayed but for different rooms..
We called on each number and checked and then we went to visit one room which was around 3 kms from nani railway station and finally we ended up finalising that room only as this process already took our 2 hours and now it was around 7.50 pm already.
We checked in the room and it was basic but clean.
We settled down quickly and asked the room owner for the transportation facility, surprisingly he suggested for E-rickshaw beacuse we were planning to visit sangam ghat at night, so he said that the roads were too narrow and only E-rickshaw will be able to reach there.
He called his known rickshaw person and all 4 of us somehow managed to adjust ourselves.
We asked rickshaw wala to take us to some decent restaurant for dinner... after 15 mins he stoped the in front of dark street stall and asked us to try the patent local food “LITTI CHOKHA”, we were not convinced with that stall but ended up to eating the same food twice.
the local desi food’s taste was so delicious (flavour was simple but different)I cant even forget that moment as everything was like complementing and new for us..
new city, night ride in E-rickshaw, chilling weather, different food stall and hot delicious local street food we were having.
and all credit goes to that rickshaw wala Bhaiya
at Arail Ghats the Kumbh Tent City was set-up during the Ardh kumbh mela (you can see in my picture)..
Night view of Arail ghat becomes memorabale during Kumb with sight of beautiful lighting on New Nanin Bridge which is constructed over yamuna river.
From arail ghat we went to visit New nani bridge where colourful lights changes frequently and then we crossed the old Nani bridge which was parallelly constructed to new bridge and it is one of the oldest (around 150 years old) and longest bridge in India ..
what makes it diffrent is, the bridge is Double Deck & Double Road below
Double Rail Line on Top and it was again decorated with the yellow lights.
we had crossed many streets and squares of Prayagraj and then after the night city tour we reached to our room around 12.30 am.
Then we headed towards naini sangam ghat which was around 2 kms from there, we crossed the narrow dark streets, it was around 10.30 pm and the city was already in its initial sleep stage.
when we reached at the nani ghat it was looking so amazing, the huge area of ghat (river) both side was floaded with the white lights and if I say floaded I mean it looked like another electric sun light.
we started walking and steped down 50 stairs and then big area covered with the cold sand...
its like walking in the sand on river side under full fledged lights... the aura was calm and brought the peace for reaching the place so easily which we used to heard from decades about that KUMB mela and here we were exploring the unspoken part of Kumb city at night.
