Triveni Sangam Allahabad

 

Triveni Sangam is considered a very sacred place for Hindus. It is the meeting point of three rivers i.e., Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati (now dried up).

 

However, people believe that taking a dip at Triveni Ghat will wash away all their sins and they will get free from the cycle of death and rebirth.

 

Also, it is believed (according to astrology) that at a particular time of the year the water turns into nectar. And it turns mortals into immortals and the legends say that drops of immortal nectar fell into this spot during a mythological battle between gods and demons.

 

Many people gather here at the time of Maha Kumbh Mela. It is the largest gathering of humanity on earth, over a three-month period; an estimated 100 million people attended the most recent festival, in 2013.

“I am that person who dropped her B.Tech (really!) and chose to travel, specifically travel blogging. I’m Manmeet Kaur, a crazy, fun loving and adventurous person from Delhi. I knew I had an interest in writing since I was in school. I didn’t want to be an engineer, doctor or I would say a teacher. My plans were different. I wanted to travel which I guess no one,  specially girl had chosen to do in my family for a living. And like other human beings on this planet I have big dreams too. But my ultimate dream is to travel the world and share my experiences through writing and blogging.” 🙂
