Sangam

SANGAM

At the point of Sangam where the mighty Ganges meets the Yamuna, pandas (priests) perch on small platforms to perform puja (pray) and assist the devout in their ritual ablutions in the holy waters. The sacred Sangam is the confluence of three of the holiest rivers in Hindu mythology – Ganga, Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati. At the Sangam, the waters of the Ganges and the Yamuna can be distinctly seen to merge into one. It is during the Kumbh/Ardh Kumbh that the Sangam truly comes alive attracting the largest gathering in the world of the devout from all across the country and the world.
