Prayagraj earlier known as Allahabad is a city in Uttar Pradesh state, north India. Triveni Sangam, the confluence of the Ganges, Yamuna, and "invisible" Saraswati rivers, is considered holy by Hindus. It’s near the 16th-century Allahabad Fort, built by Mughal Emperor Akbar. In the fort are the ancient sandstone Ashoka Pillar, the underground Patalpuri Temple, and a sacred banyan tree. The Allahabad Museum has Rajasthani miniature paintings.
Inside the walled garden, Khusro Bagh is the 17th-century Mughal-style mausoleums of Emperor Jahangir’s family members. Anand Bhavan, the ancestral home of the Nehrus, is now a museum with memorabilia from the Nehru-Gandhi family. It’s next to Swaraj Bhavan, the birthplace of the former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and close to the domed Jawahar Planetarium. West of the city, Chitrakoot is a forested area associated with the Hindu "Ramayana" epic poem. It’s believed that Rama and his wife Sita, the main characters in the verse, spent over a decade here in exile, and it is now a place of pilgrimage.
