Here are some of the best places to visit in Allahabad

Triveni Sangam 

  • The meeting point or the confluence of three of the most important rivers in the Hindu religion, Triveni Sangam, is a holy place located in Allahabad. It is one of the most popular and sacred places to visit in Allahabad, and is often a host to some of the most important fairs and festivals of the religion.
  • The rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Sarawati meet at the Sangam. Due to the popularity of the region, the entire city of Allahabad is also sometimes referred to as Sangam. Every 12 years, an incredibly auspicious festival called the Kumbh Mela is organized at this location, while every six years, the Ardh Kumbh is hosted here.

  • Both of these festivals see a massive influx of tourists and locals to the Sangam. Hindus take a dip at the place where the rivers meet, believing that touching the holy water washes away the sins of all births. The Sangam can be easily identified by the varying colors of the Ganges and the Yamuna river, the latter of which has slightly greenish water.
