Allahabad holds pride of place in Hindu mythology, Indian history as well as modern politics. But considering its importance, the city is relatively relaxed. If you are a history buff, you will be in awe of the edifices and structures that have stood the test of time in the city. The Hindu God of Creation, Brahma, is believed to have landed in Allahabad, or Prayag as it was originally known. The city is known as the main pilgrimage hub of India. Sangam, a river confluence on the outskirts of Allahabad, is home to the country’s four Kumbh Mela sites. The riverbanks attract a large number of pilgrims every six years for the Kumbh Mela or Ardh (Half) Mela. However, the city plays host to the much smaller Magh Mela. There are so many places to visit in Prayagraj like Allahabad’s grand Raj-era buildings, Mughal Fort and tombs.
One of the many places travellers should visit when in Allahabad is Triveni Sangam- the confluence of the Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati. The three have their own distinct colour and identity. It is a major site of the Kumbh Mela. A trip to the ancient city is not complete without a tour of the Allahabad Fort. The fort was reportedly originally built by emperor Ashoka but was revamped by Mughal emperor Akbar in 1583. If you want to experience Mughal architecture in all its glory, pay the fort a visit. The walled garden pays homage to the Mughal style of architecture. There are three tombs within the premises – one dedicated to the Jahangir’s eldest son, Khusaru Mirza and his first wife Shah Begum as well as his daughter Nithar Begum. One must also take the time to visit the Gothic-style All Saints Cathedral. The church is 31 meters in height. The massive church building covers about 1250 square meters and is one of the famous buildings from the colonial era. The complex also contained a memorial to Queen Victoria and functions as a lantern tower.
Also, a visit to Anand Bhavan can give you insight into the Nehru Family residence. The building also houses the Jawahar Planetarium, which was constructed in 1979. If you are planning a trip to Allahabad, the best time to visit the city is during the winter season - between October and March. The temperature remains comfortable and is perfect for sightseeing and other activities. There are a host of OYO rooms located near some of the city’s important hubs. From homes with a modern look to heritage buildings, you can take your pick from a wide selection of budget and premium accommodation. If you are looking to stay in the heart of the city or close to important places of interest, you can book OYO rooms near MG Road or Civil Lines. There are also a slew of OYO budget hotels near South Malaka and Hastings Road. Some of the hotels listed also provide pick up and drop facility from Allahabad railway station.
