Located about 7 kilometres from the Civil Lines Township in Allahabad, the Triveni Sangam is the junction point of three rivers - Ganga, Yamuna, and Saraswati (which is a mythical river, supposed to have dried up millenniums ago). Both Ganga and Yamuna are extremely revered rivers in Indian mythology, and hence the confluence point of these rivers has attained extremely high religious importance.
Sangam is beautifully picturesque specially during winters, when the weather is nice. You can rent a boat and ask the guy to row you around the Sangam area - that's a great experience. It's not as dirty as what many people think it would be, so you can even go take a dip in the holy waters.
What's the best way to reach Sangam from the city area, say the railway station? How much does it cost?
Answer: You can take an Ola cab to reach Sangam from anywhere in the city. The cab will drop you close to the point from where you can take a boat to reach the Sangam point. Will cost around 100 rs and take 15-20 minutes. (As of 2018)
