The early hours of Monday will see the first holy at the Sangam, the confluence the Ganga, Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati as part of the Mahakumbh, a once-in-12 years congregation at Allahabad. The confluence, also called the Triveni Sangam, will see crores taking a bath, which they believe, purifies the soul and helps them attain salvation (moksha).


 

The mela will see 10 crore people in the next 55 days starting with the first 'shahi snan'.
