This fort is also known as Akbar's Fort. This is under the control of the Indian Army so one is not allowed to see the full fort but only those places which are of interest to the pilgrims. It is an experience to watch that.

Located right on the banks of river Yamuna. The rampants overlook the sangam area. Its a nicely maintained fort with lot of space around for walks inside.

The Allahabad Fort is just a stone's throw from the Sangam. So if visit the Sangam, you might as well visit the Allahabad Fort built by Emperor Akbar. Most of is used by the Army and hence closed to the public. It has the Akshay Vat, Saraswati Koop and Patalpuri Temple are in the precincts. Nothing to write home about.

This fort is opposite to sangan. sangan is the place where 3 rivers unite. Now days you can see on limited part of the fort as other part is blocked by govt.. the fort was built by emperor Ashoka. Please be aware of people as they can irritate you by asking money every time. please visit Patalpuri temple.

The fort was built by emperor Ashoka and was later maintained by Akbar. Fort is very old and most of it is occupied by army and only a limited area is open to visitors. The famous akshayvat tree is there and the Patalpuri temple is also here.

Saw this place from the outside and it looks very impressive. Unfortunately we were told that on the day that we were there that entry was not permitted. Would have been great to see the inside of the fort. Although, we were also told that tourists are not able to enter most of the fort as it is occupied by... More
