Alluring Vistas of Allahabad

By Manoj

Take a trip to Allahabad, one of the largest cities of Uttar Pradesh. Formerly called Prayag, this city is a major religious centre and you can see its name mentioned in the Vedas and in the Hindu epics - Ramayana and Mahabharata. The colonial legacy of the British and Indian mythology both play an important role in the tourist sights of the city today, namely in Alfred Park and Akshyavat. Allahabad is also a place to drool over some delicious Mughalai dishes and also the fresh ripe mangoes and guavas during summer and winter respectively. Here is a pictorial guide to the city of Allahabad.
