This is the Ghat (steps to the holy bath) at the Sangam, i.­e.­ the exact point of the confluence.­ Hindu pilgrims take a holy dip right where the two sacred rivers meet.­

In Hindu mythology and culture, the Bhagirathi (on the left, with the green water) is considered the source stream of the Ganges.­ However, in hydrology, the other headstream, Alaknanda (on the right, with the brown water), is considered the source stream on account of its great length and discharge.­
