Here the Magh Mela is an annual gathering of Hindu pilgrims, on the banks of Triveni Sangam (the confluence of Holy Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati). This Mela is usually held every year during the Hindu month of Magh (January & February) for over a period of 45 days. A large number of people arrive here annually and stay in a make shift houses or tents at the Sangam. Kalpavasis spending the entire month of Magh practising religious rituals and prayers.
