Prayaga is the sacred site where the Ganges, Yamuna, and Sarasvati Rivers converge, formerly known as Allahabad.

Description

In a scene from their exile in the forest, the royal party arrives at the hermitage of a sage who greets him with folded hands. The blue Rama, his wife Sita, and his brother Lakshmana bow slightly in respect to the sage. The hermitage appears luxurious, with floral ornament inlaid in marble, bottles in niches, and an entrance similar to Mughal viewing windows.
