This Fort was build by Mughal emperor Akbar in 1583. The fort stands on the banks of the Yamuna near its confluence with the river Ganges. About 7 km from Allahabad railway station, near Sangam. Presently the fort is occupied by the Indian Army, only part of it is open to the visitors

Allahabad is worth a visit as it is a wholy place and a heritage city,though the city is not properly managed as dump sites are near the sangam and lot of beggars around

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.
