Triveni Sangam at Prayagraj is the place of confluence of three major rivers of India i.e. Ganga, Yamuna and mythical Saraswati. It is believed that at the time of Samudramanthan (Stirring of Ocean) when amrit came out from the ocean, there was fight between demons and gods for that amrit and during that fight few drops of amrit fell on the earth and Prayag is one of the four places where that drops fell. That is why Prayag is also called as king of all the Tirth (Tirth Raj Prayag in Hindi) and is one of the most sacred places for Pind Daan in India. Pind Daan at Prayag is generally performed at the bank of river Ganga or Yamuna or at the sangam site itself.
