PRAYAG
The Holy Sangam

It is on this soil Brihaspathi dropped a few drops of divine nectar, when carried the precious pitcher filled with amrit for distribution among gods. It is here at the confluence of the' three rivers, kumbhamela is held once every twelve years that attracts millions and millions of devout theists, living all over the globe for a ritual dip, believing it to cleanse all types of sins, committed from birth onwards. And it is the holy waters of this place that releases one from the cycle of births and deaths. It is at this place, where the Parliament of Religions is conducted during the Mela periods, which is represented by all the religions of mankind, and a spectacular procession of sadhus of all denominations that feasts the eyes of devout religionists. It is the divinity of this place that grants remissions of sins, like homicide and suicide with a mere bath in Triveni during the Kumbha-mela. It is in this holy place, the reputed poet-saint Sri Ramananda was born.
