Allahabad Fort Overview

Built-in 1583, this stunning piece of architecture stands at the Triveni Sangam in Allahabad to remind tourists of the city’s rich history. Akbar, a famous Mughal Emperor, is said to have been much impressed by the aura of Allahabad. As a result, he decided to construct a grand fort in the region. This fort was erected to envelop the Akshayavat, a holy tree for the Hindus of the area.

The Archaeological Survey of India has classified the Allahabad fort as a monument of National Importance and maintains its interiors for tourists. The exteriors reflect the brilliance of Mughal architecture with significant motifs and inscriptions in some parts of the fort. As a tourist, do not forget to enjoy the grandeur of the fort while in Allahabad, since it is one of the best places to visit in prayagraj.
