The fort has a history to itself but does not offer the opportunity to explore that history as most parts of it is out of bounds as it now serves as a garrison for the army.

You can view the Fort from the river, but otherwise its an Army facility with limited public access. Go at dusk for the best views during sunset.

I think it is impossible to visit inside at all now, so go to the bathing places and see the fort from the outside on the way.

Rangmahaal of the fort is located inside the allahabad fort. It requires permission from authorities to visit this monument. It's another great example for great Indian architecture. This is three storeyed stone structure which used be recreational purpose by AKBAR the Moghal king.
