About Sangam and the Ghats

Sangam is the renowned spot for holy dip and offering prayers. This place is also known as Triveni Sangam. ‘Sangam’ meaning meet/merge, is so called because it is the point where the holy Rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati meet. One can hire boats from the Qila Ghat to see the actual spot where the rivers converge. Devotees also take bath in the river water with a belief to shed off their sins and attain ‘moksha’ (salvation). Devotees also immerse the ashes of their deceased relatives to help them achieve Moksha after death. The ghats are filled with swarming crowds. Nearby are the Saraswati and Nehru Ghats where evening Aartis take place.
