Panch Prayag

Panch Prayag, also known as the “Five Prayags,” is a significant pilgrimage site in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, situated in the Garhwal region of the Himalayas.

Here are the five Prayags in the order in which they occur as you move upstream along the Ganges River:

  1. Vishnuprayag: This is the first Prayag, where the Alaknanda River, which originates from the confluence of the Satopanth and Bhagirath Kharak glaciers, meets the Dhauliganga River, which flows from the Niti Valley.
  2. Nandaprayag: The second Prayag, Nandaprayag, is where the Alaknanda River converges with the Nandakini River, which originates from the Nanda Devi Peak.
  3. Karnaprayag: This is the third Prayag, where the Alaknanda River meets the Pindar River, which flows from the Pindar Glacier.
  4. Rudraprayag: At Rudraprayag, the Alaknanda River merges with the Mandakini River, which originates from the Chorabari Glacier near Kedarnath.
  5. Devprayag: Devprayag is the fifth and final Prayag, where the Alaknanda River joins with the Bhagirathi River, which originates from the Gangotri Glacier. This confluence marks the official beginning of the Ganges River.

Panch Prayag holds immense religious and spiritual significance for Hindus, and pilgrims often visit these sites as part of their journey to seek blessings and purification.
