Allahabad Fort stretched along the banks of River Yamuna narrates the heroic tale of Allahabad's legendary past. Akbar has once again proved his brilliant architectural skills by constructing the Allahabad Fort ages ago in 1583. Once a favoured garrison of Mughal Empire, the fort is now a prestigious landmark that draws the attention of globetrotters throughout the year.

You can definitely walk along the fort premises and explore the sandstone carved Ashoka Pillar and other halls and palaces. However, a boat ride along Yamuna waters is the best way to appreciate its rising towers, enormous walls and gateways. The fort remains open seven days a week to welcome national and international tourist crowd from morning to evening. If you are one of those who is inspired by Akbar's brilliant craftsmanship and studied enough about his contribution during medieval times, then a tour to Allahabad Fort must be included in your travel itinerary.

The fort itself is a site to stare at, but the halls, palaces and temples like

  • Patalpuri Temple
  • Ashoka Pillar and
  • Palace of Mariam-uz-Zamani
are equally stunning masterpieces.

Indian history is not meant to be read in text books, but to witness them with your own eyes, appreciate their beauty and associated stories and take pride in our country's ancient emperors who beautifully engraved their architectural brilliance along the Indian soil. Owing to its glory and valour, the Allahabad Fort has been recognized as a monument of national importance by the Archaeological Survey of India.
