Now Allahabad is PrayagrajThe government of Uttar Pradesh gave its acceptance for changing the name of Allahabad to Prayagraj. The original name of this place is Prayaga. But the city was named Allahabad by Emperor Akbar in the 16th century. 'Prayagraj' would be used to promote Indian culture on an international scale, told by the local BJP MP.
This place is having a union of three rivers namely Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswathi and very famous as Triveni sangamam. This place is a very sacred place for Hindus. Many people will go and have a holy dip in the river where the three rivers are meeting.
