Around Allahabad


Allahabad also makes a good base from which to venture into the remoter parts of Bundelkhand to the south. The sprawling pilgrimage town of CHITRAKUT (also called Sitapur) is 128km southwest, and easily accessible by both train and bus. It’s also a good place to catch onward transport to Kalinjar and Khajuraho. Together with its twin town of Karbi, 8km east (where there are train connections to Allahabad, Kolkata and Delhi), Chitrakut is a major Vaishnavite pilgrimage centre.
