Hinduism - Where Is Devaprayag? What Does Devaprayag Mean?



Devaprayag ("divine confluence") is a term used to describe the occurrence of two or more Sacred town (tirtha) in Uttar Pradesh's northern region, nestled in the Himalaya Mountains approximately sixty miles up the Ganges from Haridwar. 

The confluence of the Bhagirathi and Alakananda rivers, the major Himalayan tributaries of the Ganges, makes Devaprayag holy. 

In the Himalayas, Devaprayag is the penultimate such river confluence, and it is here that the Ganges is ultimately created as one indivisible holy stream.
