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.

I expeceted here to see i would be allowed to enter into the fort.. but i was allowed to enter only 25% of the fort area. maybe even less. this lies exactly opposite to sangam where three rivers Ganga yamuna and Saraswathi unite. Its a good fort no doubt but the people in the place make this place not so... More

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.

A magnificent fort located at the Sangam of the Ganga, Yamuna and mythical Saraswati, in Allahabad. This pristine fort was fabled to be originally built by Emperor Asoka, but later in 1583 repaired by the Mughal Emperor Akbar. Since the mid-1800s, during the British East India Company times, it has become an Army Garrison, for stocking of munitions and served... More

The fort is quite large and is situated on the bank of river Yamuna. The internal part of the fort is occupied by the armies so only a certain part of it is allowed for travelers to see. Hmm wish we can see the whole fort one day !!
