Welcome to Allahabad

A City of many dimensions is what befits a description of Allahabad. In addition to being a major pilgrimage centre, the city has played an important part in the formation of modern India. Hindu mythology states that Lord Brahma, the creator god, chose a land for 'Prakrishta Yajna'. This land, at the confluence of three holy rivers - Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati, blessed by gods, came to be known as Prayag' or 'Allahabad'. Foreseeing the sancity of the place, Lord Brahma also called it as 'Tirth Raj' or 'King of all pilgrimage centres'. The Scriptures - Vedas and the great epics - Ramayana and Mahabharata, refer to this place as Prayag. During the time of the Mughals a massive fort was built in 1583, by emperor Akbar. Centuries followed. Allahabad became the headquarters of North Western Provinces, after being shifted from Agra. Well preserved relics of the British impact includes the Muir College and the All Saints Cathedral. Many important events in India's struggle for freedom, took place here - the emergence of the first Indian National Congress in 1885, the beginning of Mahatma Gandhi's non-violence movement in 1920. Anand Bhawan, the home of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, is now a shrine to the independence movement. Now maintained as a Museum, allows visitors to peer through glass screens into the interior to see how the first family lived.
