A large hall with 180 feet high tower
Travel back in history. Designed by William Emerson, this is an excellent mix of Gothic and Indian architectural elements. Commenced in 1874 (1872) and opened in 1886, it has an arcade quadrangle which is dominated by a 200 feet minaret tower in cream colored sandstone from Mirzapur with marble and mosaic floors. The domes of the Indo-Saracenic structure are clad in Multan glazed tiles.
The ghat around the corner from the Sangam in front of Akbar's Fort hosts a nightly aarti (an auspicious lighting of lamps/candles).
Visit the old Anand Bhawan, which in the year 1930 was donated to the Nation by Moti Lal Nehru, to be used as the headquarters of the Congress Committee. Moti Lal Nehru renamed it as Swaraj Bhawan. Late Prime Minister of India, Mrs. Indira Gandhi was born here. Facility of light & sound show from 11:00 am to 5:30 pm is available.
