How to Reach:
Prayageshwar is located in the premises of Bandi Devi temple at D.17/100, Dasaswamedh. Devotees can travel upto Dasaswamedh by rickshaw and just before the Ghat, they have to take a right turn. It is advisable to ask for directions from local shop keepers as there are several labyrinthine (confusing) gullies in the vicinity.
