Allahabad is one of the holiest city of India situated in the state of Uttar Pradesh.  It is among the largest cities in Uttar Pradesh .  Hindu mythology has it that for the Prakrishta Yajna, Lord Brahma,the creator God of the Trinity, chose a land on earth, on which the three rivers would be flowing into a quiet confluence. The city is situated on the meeting spot of these three  rivers — the Ganga, the Yamuna, and the invisible holy Saraswathi. This confluence, which is called Triveni, is sacred to the Hindus. The Triveni Sangam is believed to be the same place where drops of Nectar fell out of the pitcher, during a battle between demi-gods and demons. So it is believed that a bath in the Sangam will wash away all the sins and will clear the way to heaven. Devout Hindus from all over India come to this sacred pilgrimage point to offer prayers and take a dip in the holy waters. The Sacred Kumbh Fair is held after every 12 years at the banks of the Sangam, draws huge crowds.
