Efforts are being made to start an open-air light and sound show at the Sangam in Prayagraj, showcasing religious fairs and attracting tourists. The show would cost around ₹10 crore and use weather-proof equipment to ensure functionality during the rainy season. The aim is to encourage tourists to stay in Prayagraj instead of moving on to other cities.
The Indian railway will install 713 CCTV cameras at nine railway stations in Prayagraj for the Mahakumbh-2025 religious fair to monitor and manage crowds. The cameras will be connected to control rooms and an AI system to assess overcrowding and potential trouble spots in real time. The railway plans to operate 1,200 special trains during the fair from all nine stations to prevent overcrowding at any one location. A gap analysis team has also been established to identify areas for improvement.
