Triveni Sangam Allahabad

This holy place is the meeting point of rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati in Prayagraj, formerly known as Allahabad. This is also the place where the Maha Kumbh fair is celebrated and is known to be the largest human gathering anywhere on Earth. The best part is that people come and be a part of this gathering irrespective of caste, creed, or religion to enjoy the colours of humanity. The Ardh Kumbh takes place every six years in Haridwar and Prayagraj, and the Purna Kumbh takes place every 12 years in Prayagraj, Haridwar, Nashik and Ujjain. This goes on for 5 days when people come and take a dip in the Triveni Sangam which, according to ancient beliefs, washes away a lifetime of sins.
