This prominent temple near the Fort is unique in the sense that it has a huge idol of Lord Hanuman in a lying posture a few feet below the ground. Sangam The place where three holy rivers, Ganga, Yamuna and mythical Saraswati merge into one. It offers fascinating view at sunrise and sunset. Kumbh Mela, Ardh Kumbh Mela and annual Magh Mela are held on the banks of Sangam. One can reach Sangam by boat for a dip in the holy Waters.
Hanuman Mandir, located in proximity to the Allahabad Fort is one of the unique temples in the city. Tourists visiting the temple can witness a huge idol of Hanuman, which is 20 feet long and 8 feet wide. This idol is in a reclining position and is a few feet below the ground. This temple gets submerged when the river Ganges is in spate. According to mythology, it is believed the rise in the water level of river Ganges is because the river wants to touch the feet of Lord Hanuman.
Lord Brahma ( the creator of universe according to Hindu mythology) had said "Prayagasya Praveshshu Papam Nashvati Tatkshanam".- All sins are cleansed when one puts his foot on Prayag. Allahabad or Prayag was given this divine and holy status because of the presence of three holy rivers and their confluence at Prayag.
Sangam is the confluence of three rivers at Allahabad which are; the holy Ganga, the holy Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati. River Saraswati ( symbolic of knowledge) was once believed to flow at Allahabad.
Yamuna is deep and has swifter water current in comparison to Ganga. It is blue and black in colour, as compared to Ganga which is white and greyish in colour. But surprisingly, Yamuna loses its properties after the confluence with river Ganga, as it mixes and annihilates in shallow and white current of river Ganga. Mythologically, it is linked with the sacrifice of river Yamuna, which had offered its course to Ganga to go to Ganga Sagar.
Sangam finds very pleasant reference in Ramcharitmanas( Indian Scripture) of Tulsidas. In Bhavishua Puran, the confluence of Ganga and Yamuna is famous for fulfilling of desires in the three loks. In Vedic Texts (Rigveda) Ganga and Yamuna are mentioned as white and blue coloured streams mingling at Prayag, where a dip at Sangam (the confluence) gives immortality to earthlings. A similar narration is found in Raghuvansh of Poet Kalidas. Mythological Saraswati is also observed to be at Prayag at Rigveda.
Bathing at Prayag as mentioned in Brahma Puran " (in the month of Magha at the bank of Ganga and Yamuna in Prayag ) bestows results of millions and millions of Ashvamedha Yajna." The Ganga (white current), Yamuna (blue and black current) have great spiritual importance. Bathing at the bank of rivers in general and at the confluence in particular bestows benevolence to earthlings. The magnitude accelerates when the Jupiter, the Sun and the Moon and/or Saturn conjugate in a particular zodiac. This once in twelve year occasion is known as Kumbhsnanyoga.

In addition, the park also holds an important position in the history of British India. This is because the park is constructed on the same place where Lord Canning read out the declaration of Queen Victoria's Proclamation in 1858.
This step was however taken in the wake of Sepoy Mutiny, which occurred in 1857. The blatant corruption that prevailed in the ranks of the East India Company was the major reason behind this mutiny. This decision further resulted in transforming the status of India from that of an 'Economic Interest Zone' into a 'Colony'.

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.
