Allahabad Fort was built by Emperor Akbar at Allahabad  in 1583 AD. The massive fort standing on the banks of the river Yamuna near the confluence with river Ganges  is recognised by the Archaeological Survey of India as a monument of national importance. 

Known for  it’s architectural design and excellence,  the Allahabad Fort is the largest fort constructed by Akbar with three magnificent galleries that are flanked by high towers. The outer wall is in good shape and rises above the water's edge. The fort encloses  Akshayavat or "immortal tree". Legends say that whoever jumps from this centuries-old banyan tree,  will attain immortality. Civilians are not allowed to see this tree. When Akbar built the fort, he did not disturb the tree; it is near the southern waIl. Inside the fort one would find the Zenana (royal ladies quarters), Palace of Mariam-uz-Zamani and the 3rd century BCE Ashoka pillar. Yet another attraction in the fort is  the Saraswati Koop, said to be the source of the Saraswati river, and the Patalpuri temple are also here.
