Introduction
Allahabad, sacred city of Hinduism was formerly called 'Prayag' in commemoration of a sacrifice Allahabad Citydone by Lord Brahma. According to Hindu mythology for the 'Prakrishta Yagna' Lord Brahma chose a piece of land on the earth on the confluence of the three rivers - the Ganga, the Yamuna, and the mytical Saraswati. This confluence is called Sangam. The Sangam is the venue of many sacred fairs and ritual and attracts thousands of pilgrims throughout the year. Akbar had visited Prayag in 1575 AD and founded a new city by the name Illahabad which has now become Allahabad. The city was an important cantonment during the British Raj and has some beautiful remnants of colonial architecture. In the the early 20th century, Allahabad was the foremost centre of learning in the country.
