Since River ganga flows through Allahabad it has a lot cultural Importance and hence the city is considered to be holy because of mythological connections with Lord Shiva. It is one of the saffron cities (saffron is colour of hinduism) in India which is respected by Hindus and also by other communities. There are a lot of other qualities of Allahabad which are often overshadowed by this Saffron colour. If you really want to know what are they ? you have to watch it closely without that saffron tint , try being colorblind, because people’s true colors are often seen when world is black and white.
1st) Allahabadi’s love Getting their Pictures clicked :
|“I love my Goats”
Later I was also approached by a shepherd who told me to click his pictures along with his Goats because he loves them a lot.
2nd) No matter how complicated things look there is always a simple explanation for them:
|3rd) Traffic rules are not applicable in Allahabad:
|Deforestation of Traffic Signals. Directions of lanes depends on Drivers preference. traffic signals are treated just like trees.|
4th) Allahabadi’s are eco friendly:
when it comes to transport thats is the reason there are over 5000 Human rickshaws in Allahabad. These rickshaws will go wherever you want let the distance be 1 kms or 10 kms.
5th) God is always around no matter where you are.
there are around 3 million gods in Hinduism, more than the population of Allahabad. The density of temples are more than that of man.
I had a really good experience @ Allahabad, since I was low on time there is very little that I have covered. There is much more you can see provided you look close enough .
