This is the site of the famous Kumbh mela but i found it to be one of the most dirtiest places i have ever visited. Utterly disappointing. However the market is a great place to shop for fruits and veggies which are really cheap! Grapes and pomegranate for Rs.25/kg!!!!!

It is believed that Ram, Sita and Lakshman stayed here. It is not surprising that the devotees have made it dirty. In the night lamps can be seen floating on the water surface which adds to the beauty of the place.
