Also called Sangam, Triveni Sangam is the meeting of three rivers: river Ganga, river Yamuna, and the mythical and invisible Saraswathi. The confluence offers excellent view during the sunrise and the sunset. Kumbh Mela (held once in 12 years), Ardhkumbh Mela (held once in 6 years), and Maha Mela (held every year) are held on the banks of the Sangam, during which periods hundred thousands of pilgrims throng to the place to take holy dip in the confluence.
The turbid and light yellow colour water of the Ganga merges with the green colour water of the Yamuna, resulting in a spectacular view for the visitors. River Saraswathi is hoped to flow underneath the earth and contacts the other 2 rivers.
Based on the Hindu mythology, nectar came out of the pitcher from the hands of the Lord Shiva; so a wash in Triveni Sangam will cleanse off all the sins.
