Alfred Park Overview

Ranked 6 of 52 sightseeing in Prayagraj (Allahabad)

Alfred Park, the largest park in Allahabad is one of the most famous  destinations.  The park houses huge statue of George V and Victoria, which are installed in the centre of this park. In addition, this park also served as the venue for official ceremonies during the time of British rule which were often followed by musical performances of the Police Band.

However, the park gained immense importance during the Indian Freedom Struggle. In this park  the famous encounter between the British police and Indian revolutionary took place. Inside this park, Chandra Shekhar Azad got cornered while he was trying ti escape  after an act.  Later, a full unit of the Allahabad Police, then cordoned the park and managed to cut out the escape route.

An hour-long fire exchange was followed between the Allahabad Police and Chandra Shekhar Azad. Later, when Azad realised that he has only one bullet left in his pistol, he opted to shoot himself rather than breaking his vow. This park was renamed as Chandra Shekhar Azad Park after independence. In addition, a bust statue of Azad has also been erected at the place where he shot himself and died.

WOW place

If you have a feeling to understand freedom fight movement and how Chandrashekhar Azad has devoted his life for Nation must see this place. It is sentimental issue more than statue.

Must visit for all travellers

A very nice place to be, where Chandrashekhar Azad shot himself while fighting with Britishers, brings the feel of the British India. The tree behind which he hid and shot Britishers still standing there. Overall its a must see for the travellers.
