PRAYAG
The Holy Sangam

THE SANGAM

It is the hub of spiritual life and prime attraction for every visitor, whether hedonist or religionist. Indeed, Allahabad owes its greatness to the ceremonial bath with chants at the exact place, where the three holy rivers meet. It is an exhilarating experience, apart from the spiritual bliss it holds in store. This confluence resembles more or less an island and brings to its heart all types people in boats for a dip. If once they reach the spot, and dip their bodies, they enjoy the thrilling sensation of cool waters and become oblivious of environs. It lasts longer. A memorable experience, which they cherish throughout life. When they come to the bank, they are greeted by innumerable groups of people sitting before pandas priests, absorbed either in celebrating marriages to the married with all fanfare due, or guiding in offering pindas.

For Pinda Pradhan this is as famous as Gaya. Sraddha performed at the Sangam is valued most highly by the departed. Further, god and gift of cow preferably tawny, decorated with flowers, clothes, ornaments, turmeric etc., showers many merits.
