The historic fort of Allahabad treasures up many Hindu relics and envisages the glory of Hinduism. Here is found evidence in abundance of the orthodox practices and good old traditions that glorified theism, though mortified the agnosticism. Let us enter and see one after another for full grasp. As said, this fort has been the centre of attraction for all classes of people. It is a spiritual haven and a treasure house of innumerable Hindu relics. It is here the far-famed Akshaya Vata is situated. Devout pilgrims worship it with great ardor, performing several rituals. This is also the place, where religious frenzy manifested, like committing religious suicide, though sastras specifically condemn this practice in well-defined terms. As some scriptures advocate this atmahan - suicide as prayaschitta for the guilt of mahapataka, many take recourse to this evil practice. Old and invalid, desperate and perverted fall from its high branches to end themselves, hoping to be released from the cycle of births and deaths once for all. Next to it lies a grand Sivalinga in a beautiful small shrine. After completing circumambulation, pious people take vows to give up for the rest of their lives, the pleasure of eating one particular item of food, which till then held very dear to them. So it marks the beginning of a new phase of spiritual up gradation. Many orthodox Hindus fail not to worship this Lord and also take vows to turn new pages in their lives. There are some more Saivate shrines built in recent times. Their architecture and sculpture beckon attention and adoration due. Among them, the South Indian temple housing all the Saivate gods in extremely well-built minishrines deserves indispensable visitation.

It is a famous city politically, spiritually and commercially, hence enjoying all facilities - railways and airways.
