River Saraswati is the mythical river believed to be emerging from within the ground where Ganga and Yamuna meets. It’s believed in Hindu mythology that there was once a conflict occurred between the gods and the demons during Samundra Manthan (churning of ocean) to extract the Amrit (ambrosia) from the water. When this Amrit came out filled in a pot called as kumbh, Lord Vishnu flew away taking amrit with him on His Garuda. He spilled some drops of amrit during his flight at 4 different locations on the earth which then turned the rivers of this location holy and blessed these places as the most sacred one for mankind.
