PRAYAG
The Holy Sangam

During the Tretayuga, it was but a thick forest, except for a small extent of two miles, where the sage Bharadwaja lived in his hermitage. In the vicinity of which lived Guha, the Nishada king with whose help Rama crossed the Ganges and entered the Prayaga region. Poet Valmiki gives a picturesque account of this Episode and refers to Rama and Guha, as two immortal sailor captains, one helping people cross the Ganges, and the other for crossing the ocean of births. After taking blessings of Bharadwaj, Rama moves further to Chitrakuta, and later to the asrams of several reputed sages like Agasthya.

The Picture was different in the Dwaparayuga. By the time the Kurukshetra war was over, it was a well-developed place, teeming with millions, and thriving as a popular thirtha kshetra.
