Uttar Pradesh

In their relentless journey across the country, 2 of the holiest rivers of India—Ganga, Yamuna choose to meet their mythical sister, Saraswati at Prayag before continuing their travel further. At this Sangam or union of all the memories, hopes, fears, victories, defeats that three carry, stands the sacred city of Allahabad.

Beyond the river Ghats, Allahbad’s narrow and undisciplined roads lead to several heritage structures of architectural importance as well as the newer constructions that are symbolic of the fast growing city. Allahabad also hosts the Kumbh Mela, deemed as the largest religious gathering in the world. Every 6 years, an endless trail of people makes its way on foot to the heart of the festival – the Sangam.
