The fort can be viewed only from outside. There is one temple in the fort which has access to public. But the fort is closed for public. Don't waste your time. You need permission to visit the place.

was disappointed that people told me that this fort is not accessible for public... from the outside, it looks grand with high walls and fortified along the yamuna river towards the confluence...

It is worth to see small portion of Allahabad fort which is open to public, one who is visiting Sangam must see this place for AKSHAY VAT tree, means tree can not die and may get a glimpse of Allahabad fort build by King Akbar on the banks of Yamuna river.

If you are at Allahabad you can head towards Sangam area and you will spot this big Fort built during the times of Mughals I believe. This Fort has a temple inside it and as it hosts army camp, it is restricted area for public, only a way till temple is available. Thus, nothing much to see.

Its a magnificent structure which has stood as witness to great pre-Independence history of India. This was a Mughal fortification and had accommodated many royal families. Its now under Indian Army's Control and they have their guest houses and some of the military establishments. The entire fort is not accessible to the public. Only the Hanuman mandir, Akshay Vat temple... More

Only parts of the fort are accessible to general public. The majority of fort is in the possession of the Indian army and is not open to public. Had the opportunity of going around the entire fort in the past. It is beautiful.
