About Allahabad

Allahabad is a city in Uttar Pradesh state, north India, it is one of the oldest cities in India. Apparently crowned in ancient scriptures as ‘prayag’, ‘prayagrai’ or ’teertharaj’. Allahabad is considered to be the holiest pilgrimage center in India. Allahabad is a place where you locate the Triveni Sangam; the confluence of the Ganges, Yamuna and Sarswati River which highly considered to be the holy by Hindus. The famous agglomeration of saints far across India is held here in every 12 years at Allahabad; The Kumbh Mela, perchance the largest gatherings of pilgrimage on this earth.

Apart from its religious background, the city has witnessed many historical episode and important events in India’s freedom struggle such as the emergence of the firs Indian Nation congress in 1885, the beginning of Mahatma Gandhi’s non-violence movement in 1920.

Moreover, Allahabad is considered to be the judicial capital of Uttar Pradesh with Allahabad High Court being the highest Judicial Body in the state. Allahabad is the seventh most populous city in the state, twelfth in the Northern India and thirty-sixth in India. However, Allahabad is also considered to be as the third most live able city in the state after Noida and Lucknow and twenty-ninth in the country. The city all serves with its dignity from its historical background to religious essence and perhaps with much vigor in India.

what a great professional tour. loved having people help avoid the long queue and the crowds, as much as, possible--while getting the full experience! fabulous guide in varanasi. kasif is an experienced host, with flawless english--seems like he could be from down the street back home. confident and well-liked by other tour operators and is phenomenal at photos. when you get to be with a person who loves their job, has 10+ years of experience, and is focused on your experience--what you want.

Allahabad Now Will Be Known As Prayagraj

Just before the Ardh Kumbh Mela 2019, Yogi’s cabinet announced to rename Allahabad as Prayagraj and from today onwards Allahabad will be called as Prayagraj. The word Prayag means the confluence of two or more rivers, which according to the Yogi Adityanath, perfectly denotes the city.  Earlier this month Chief minister Adityanath had announced regarding the name change of Allahabad to Prayagraj in the gathering of Sadhus and now it has been implemented. Allahabad, the name was given by the Mughal emperor Akbar in 1575 known to be an abode of god, whereas Prayag was the original name of Allahabad and bringing it back will revive the beauty and give it a true essence. Not just that, the initiative to cultivate the Indian culture in India, the process of changing name has been going on since last year and CM Yogi Adityanath has renamed many other places too,  such as, Ali Nagar to Arya Nagar, Urdu Bazar to Hindi Bazaar, Humayun Nagar to Hanuman and Nagar Mian Bazaar to Maya Bazar, in Gorakhpur.   The UP government also renamed another historic spot  Mughalsarai Railway station to Deen Dayal Upadhyaya junction. Although there have been a lot of criticism by the opposition party stating “BJP must learn to differentiate between ‘naam aur kaam name and work’. When will BJP end the politics of name change?.’’  As according to them changing name will diminish the historical importance and will also raise questions on implementing changes at prominent places like stations and University in the city.
