Situated at the confluence of the Ganga and the Yamuna, the place was known in ancient times as Prayag. It has always been a sacred place. Every twelve years the largest and holiest Hindu fair, the Kumbha Mela, takes place here. A dip at the confluence during the mela is the ambition of millions. In the fourth and fifth centuries this was one of the capitals of the Gupta Empire. In the seventh century Emperor Harsha Vardhana convened a great Buddhist assembly here which was attended by the Chinese pilgrim Hiuen-Tsang. The place was named Allahabad by Akbar who built a fort in 1583. The city has a population of 1.12 million as per 2011 census.
