The Holy Sangam

And it is the choicest abode of Sri Mahavishnu, in addition to being dear to Maheswar and Brahma, who are dwelling in it. Its modern name is Allahabad. And it is given by Akbar the great. Needles to emphasise that all these publish its unusual glory, and unique position among the holy places of our sacred Bharat.

According to legends, Sri Mahavishnu holds this sacred spot in such high esteem, that he abides here permanently in the form of  Yoga murthi. Hence, its very pronouncement, or a mere sight, why even the application of its soil on forehead, or smearing its clay all over the body, relieves one of sins of every description. It is this unique kshetra that remains unaffected by Maha Pralaya-great deluge, when every animate and inanimate falls victim to the fury of the flood that submerges the whole world. And it is alone stay then, the Trio-Vishnu, in the form of a babe on the Vatapatra Brahma at Pratishthana, and Siva as Akshaya Vatavriksha Primeval Banyan tree.
