Today, the city is undergoing rapid development and is contributing to the growth of India. It is home to a number of prestigious educational and research institutions. \r\n\r\nAllahabad maintains its cultural roots by hosting major events such as the Kumbh Mela, which is held every twelve years and attracts millions of tourists and visitors from all over the country. The fair is generally considered as the world's largest congregation of religious pilgrims. Several famous personalities such as Jawaharlal Nehru, Amitabh Bachchan, and Dhyan Chand belonged to this city. There are numerous places of interest in Allahabad, such as Jawahar Planetarium, which is located beside Anand Bhawan, the former residence of the Nehru-Gandhi family, Triveni Sangam and Allahabad Fort, a fortress built by the Mughal emperor Akbar.
