The confluence of two streams of the Ganga, Alaknanda and Bhagirathi, is the birthplace of holiest Indian river the Ganges. It is not only a sacred place of worship for Hindus but also a spectacular place to witness the merging of tributaries.
A video, going viral on social media, shows one of the facets of "Incredible India" – the tag line of the government’s tourism and culture department.

The confluence of the two tributaries can readily be seen as both amalgamate into one.
The mesmerism of the confluence occurs at Devprayag (Godly Confluence) situated in India’s mountainous state of Uttarakhand. It is also believed that three rivers meet here to form the Ganges as the river Saraswati merges the two underground.
