About Allahabad

Allahabad is west of Varanasi at the confluence of two of India's most important rivers - the Ganges and the Yamuna. The mythical Saraswati River, the river of Enlightenment, is also believed to join them here. The confluence is thought to have great soul-cleansing powers and all pious Hindus hope to bathe here at least once in their lifetime.
