Triveni Sangam – Popular Pilgrimage Site
About Triveni Sangam
Located in the Srikakulam district of the south Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, Sangam is a small village that happens to be a popular pilgrimage site for the Hindus. It is also known to be a Triveni Sangam, a mixture of three rivers, just like the famous one located in Allahabad in India. The names of the three rivers that merge here, giving birth to Sangam Srikakulam are Nagavali, Suvarnamukhi, and Vegavathi.
Sangam Srikakulam houses one of the five holy lingams of Lord Sangameshwara. The main attraction in this village is the temple of Lord Sangameshwara—devoted to popular Hindu deity Lord Shiva.
Given that the place is dedicated to Lord Shiva in its entirety, it observes grand celebrations during the popular Hindu festival of Mahashivratri. During the festival, thousands of pilgrims from nearby states and other parts of the country gather to congregate the Shivalingam and celebrate the holy festival in great spirits.
