Sangam, Allahabad, Sangam, Sangam in Allahabad in India
The place where 3 rives meet & mix up to form the holy River Ganga. The site of the two rives mixing can only be seen as the river Saraswathi mixes with these. the Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati, Sangam is visited by thousands every year . It is said that the river flows beneath the earth and meets the other two from. The place where two rivers meet is known as Prayag. The importance of a Prayag lies in the fact that Ganga and Yamuna rivers flows from.
So where was the Saraswati river, if it ever flowed?
Why is Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati River Sangam important
When did it go missing and where? This is my article that appeared in the Times of India in July on the missing river and how it still flows under the surface! Here is the article: Earlier, the scholars had identified the river with the present dry bed of the Ghaggar in Haryana and Rajasthan and the Raini, the Wahinda and the Nara streams in Pakistan.
Though it was agreed that the river frequently shifted its course, it could not be traced from its source in the Shivalik hills in the Himalayas to the estuary.DOUBLE TONE COLOUR RIVERS GANGES AND YAMUNA TOGETHER
Now through satellite imagery, aerial photographs and field surveys, CAZRI scientists have confirmed that this mighty river first of all ran through the Thar desert and then shifted its course westward. The scientists have constructed the earliest course of the Saraswati through the towns and cities of Nohar, Surjansar, Sirsa, Lunkanasar and Bikaner, and Pachpadra where this sacred river was met by the present river Luni.
One outlet of the Saraswati into the sea was at Lakhpat in Gujarat which was also a major seat of learning and a port. Further downstream, was Narayan Sarovar which is mentioned in the Mahabharata as a holy place.
Subsequently, the river occupied what is now known as the dry bed of the Ghaggar between Nohar and Anupgarh. More shifts took place later on and the river identified itself with the Raini, the Ahindi, and the Hakra Nara in Pakistan. Water has the capaicity to carry spiritual power as shown in beautiful forms of water crystals The change the name from Allahabad to Prayagraj is being questioned on the grounds that it is superficial.
This objection does not hold.
We know that the flag has no military value. However during a military campaign a flag has immense value. It increases the energy of all the soldiers.
We respect Lady Cama because she raised Indian flag, not because the flag brought the Independence. The flag increase the emotional power of the people of the country. Therefore changing the name to Prayagraj draws attention of the people to the spiritual power of the rivers and it is entirely justified. The change of name is also being questioned on grounds that the Government is rewriting history; and obliterating the Mughal history.
Ganga and Yamuna at the Sangam! But where is Saraswati river?
But history is continuously re-written. The Germans at the time of Hitler wrote a different history and Germans today write a different history.
Therefore is nothing wrong in rewriting history. The writing of history is a continuous process where new prospective are added upon old facts.
Prayag - where the Yamuna meets the Ganga
Therefore the Government is justified in changing the name so that the attention is drawn to the importance of the two rivers Ganga and Yamuna which meet at this place. The water of Ganga is removed at Narora. Water coming to Allahabad is of Kali River.
- Triveni (Ganga, Yamuna & Saraswati... - Triveni Sangam Allahabad
- CONFLUENCE OF GANGA,YAMUNA & SARASWATHI - Triveni Sangam Allahabad
- Confluence of 3 rivers, Antarvahini... - Triveni Sangam Allahabad
The real question is whether the Ganga and Yamuna are actually bringing spiritual charges today. The water of the Ganga is not reaching Allahabad today. Almost all the water is removed for irrigation at Haridwar, Bijnor, and Narora barrages for irrigation.
