Devprayag, Rishikesh Overview

Alaknanda and Bhagirathi. When they flow out of here, they are together called the Ganga. An old temple of Ram here is well known. It is believed that the town is named after Deosharma, a sage, who led a life of penance here and succeeded in having a glimpse of God.

Devprayag, meaning "holy confluence", is essentially the site of the beginning of the Ganges River. The Ganges begins with the confluence of two streams here, and its considered a place of powerful natural forces as well as spiritual forces. Devprayag is a popular destination for Hindu pilgrimages.

Devprayag is surrounded by 3 Godly peaks, named Giddhanchal Parvat, Dashrathanchal Parvat, and Narsinghancal Parvat. Giddhanchal Parvat is on top of Raghunnath Ji temple. Narsinghanchal Parvat is in front of Giddhanchal Parvat and Dashrathanchal Parvat is on top right side of "Sangam". Lord Shiva is worshiped here in the form of Linga, named Tondeshwar Mahadev and Dhaneshwar Mahadev.
