Uttar Pradesh Travel Tips

Insider advice for your Uttar Pradesh vacation

Allahabad/Prayag 4 stars

It was a cold January morning when I got off the train at Allahabad. In the evening we drove to the fair grounds of Ardha Kumbha Mela on the banks of the River Ganga at Prayag, India. Prayag is near Allahabad.

The sprawling fair grounds are on the dried up banks of the river. At places there were improvised bridges of boats. All around was a sea of tents. It made a spectacular sight!

I went down to the river and floated a leaf with flowers and incense sticks as thousands have done before me in the oldest fair in the world. Bells tolled evening chants. They say that your wishes come true of you do so. I thought I have nothing to lose, why not give it a try and so with a wish in my heart I also floated a leaf. It felt peaceful.
