Located at a distance of approximately 300 km from Delhi, you can book a one-way taxi from Delhi to Devprayag for a comfortable and luxurious ride. Devprayag is popular for the divine confluence; here, the two rivers – Bhagirathi and Alaknanda meet to form the Ganga. The river Bhagirathi is known to be the source, stream of the Ganga. Devprayag is one of the five holy confluences where different rivers merge, with holyAlaknanda. Devprayag is the main confluence because here the Bhagirathi joins with, Alaknanda(Watching Alaknanda is truly fun because Alaknanda is loud& noisy than Bhagirathi) which is now called as The Ganga.
Local sources tell This holy city is the original place where KumbhMela is supposed to be held, but due to lack of space and infrastructure, the KumbhMela has moved to Haridwar. For the tourists from Delhi, Ganga is a Pavitra (pure) river.
This small town has barely any parking space & very few hotels. As per local sources, Devprayag is a place more sacred thanHaridwar but the lack of infrastructure has cost it lack of tourists and tourism.
You have to walk a bridge and pass through a narrow lane to reach prayag.There are several temples in the city, each one beautiful than the other; but my favourite temple is Raghunathji’s temple. Raghunathji’s temple is open till late night 12:30 PM.
Whenever you visit this place from Delhi through your one-way taxi, beware of the local guide and persist who ask you for money in the name of god or guide. Devprayag can be easily accessed by road and to avoid the hassle of public transport you can hire a taxi from Delhi to Devprayag.
