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

Allahabad Fort is one of those places which could have been the most attractive monument of Allahabad had it not been under the control of the Ordance Factory. The high walls, the watch towers etc. visible from the outside leave such an impression that one regrets not being allowed to get a closer look. It has the potential to challenge... More

This Fort was constructed by the great Mughal Emperor, Akbar in the 16th century. It lies on the banks of the Yamuna just before reaching the Sangam. Only a limited portion is allowed for tourist to enter, since the fort is occupied by the defense forces. Has potential to be converted into a major tourist attraction.

It is a pity that Allahabad has got less importance as far as tourism is concerned, inspite, of it's having such wonderful historic sites. It should have been controlled by Archealogical survey of India instead its still being used as a storing ground for the defence purpose. Historians should wake up and bring this archeological sites to the forefront.
