Allahabad is a city in northern India. Its former name, "Prayaga," means "place of offerings," due to its location at the meeting place of the Ganges, Yamuna, and Sarasvati Rivers. This position also makes it the site of an enormous pilgrimage and religious festival.

The area was originally inhabited around 700 BC as a place of ritual sacrifice. In 1858, the city was capital of India for one day.

Today, Allahabad is best known for its deep undercurrent of religious significance, as well as for its shopping markets, temples, architecture, bridge, riverfront, and history.

Allahabad in People's Lives

Rudyard Kipling: I transferred to a bigger and better newspaper editing job in this city in 1887, where I continued to work, write, and explore furiously. In 1888, I had all of six books of short stories published. I also served as the paper's foreign correspondant (a job that I had eagerly volunteered to take on) and spent much time traveling around Asia writing articles about my journeys. However, my time at the Allahabad paper did not go so well as my time working at the paper in Lahore. After a series of disputes, I was fired in 1889.
