PRAYAG
The Holy Sangam

Celebration of arsha type of marriage here is recommended by the scriptures, and it fetches immortal bliss to the parents. Further it is enunciated in the scriptures that one can fulfill desires of any kind, if he stays for one month at Prayag and prays to deities after bath everyday in Triveni. Tonsure at Prayag has special a merit. Sastras say, rather vociferously that one has to necessarily shave at Prayaga, offer Pindas at Gaya, make offerings at Kurukshethra and leave mortal body at Kasi. If one offers hair at Prayaga, he is exempted from giving the same at other places of religious importance like Gaya, Kurukshetra or Kasi. Men are shaved completely beard and moustaches, and in the case of women, cutting of tresses about two finger breadths has the same merit. After performing several religious rites, the pilgrims walk straight to the fort over-looking the scenic confluence of Triveni. It was built by emperor Akbar during his heyday. It is an architectural marvel, unrivalled in its crafts manship, elegance and designs.
