About Allahabad

Allahabad, officially known as Prayagraj since 2018, is a city steeped in historical and religious significance in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. With a population of approximately 1.5 million people as of 2023, it is situated at the confluence of three rivers: the Ganges, Yamuna, and the mythical Sarasvati. This confluence, known as 'Triveni Sangam,' is considered one of the holiest places in Hinduism.

Allahabad experiences a humid subtropical climate, with hot summers, a monsoon season, and mild winters. The best time to visit Allahabad is between October and March when the weather is cooler and more conducive to exploring the city's rich cultural heritage.

Allahabad is accessible via Allahabad Airport, also known as Prayagraj Airport, which is located about 12 kilometers from the city center. It provides direct flight connections to several major cities in India, making it convenient for domestic and international travelers.

The cuisine of Allahabad is a blend of North Indian flavors, with a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Street foods such as chaat, samosas, and sweets like jalebi are popular among locals and tourists. Traditional meals often feature lentils, rice, roti, and vegetables cooked with spices that reflect the region’s agrarian influences.

Allahabad's tourist attractions reflect its historical and spiritual significance. The Allahabad Fort, built by Emperor Akbar, stands as a monument of Mughal architecture and offers a panoramic view of the city. The Kumbh Mela, held every 12 years at Triveni Sangam, is one of the world's largest religious gatherings and a profoundly spiritual experience for Hindus.

Other notable sites include Anand Bhavan, the erstwhile residence of the Nehru-Gandhi family, now a museum dedicated to the Indian Independence movement. The Allahabad Museum, located in the lush Chandrashekhar Azad Park, houses rare artifacts and offers insights into the history and culture of the region.

For nature enthusiasts, the company gardens and Khusro Bagh provide a serene escape with beautifully laid-out parks and historical tombs within their premises.
