Unknown to many, Allahabad is home to a beautiful Hanuman Temple which gets submerged in the waters of the river Ganga when it is in full flow. As per local legends, it is believed amongst Hindus that the river Ganga wants to touch the feet of Lord Hanuman, and hence it increases its water level. The temple is an important landmark in the city and is visited by thousands of Hindu devotees every year. It houses a 20-feet-tall statue of Lord Hanuman.

The largest religious gathering in the world, Kumbh Mela is a festival of faith which is attended by millions of Hindus every year to take a bath in the holy rivers across the country. It is celebrated once in every 12 years. The most prominent site of Kumbh Mela is the confluence of the Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati rivers. This age-old fair is said to have been in existence for thousands of years. As per Hindu mythology, it is believed to be one of the places where Lord Vishnu dropped the drink of immortality. The next event of Kumbh Mela is going to be held in the year 2025.
