about allahabad fort

Built in the 16th century at the behest of Mughal Emperor Akbar, the Allahabad Fort is a massive monument and was unrivalled for a long, long time in terms of design, intricacy and craftsmanship. Today, a large part of the fort is occupied by the Indian army, which is inaccessible to civilians, and hence only a small part of the fort is open to visitors.

When visiting the fort, you can take a look at the massive Ashoka Pillar. Standing at over 10 metres tall, the pillar was carved out of sandstone and bears important inscriptions from 232 BC. Another stellar part of the fort is the Jodhabai Palace, which depicts beautiful amalgamation of Hindu and Islamic architecture. The fort also houses the Patliputra Temple which is situated underground near its eastern end and the Akshyavat and source of Saraswati River, both of which are off limits.

It is said that there is a hidden tunnel inside this fort that connects New Delhi and Agra. The entry to this fort is restricted for people on normal days as this fort is being taken over by army as their base.
