HOW TO REACH

By plane
Allahabad Airport (IXD) also called Bamrauli Field is essentially a military base with a one-room passenger terminal and one commercial flight per day run by Air India . Baggage is hand delivered after arrival so wait in the terminal if you have checked luggage for it to be delivered. It is far easier to fly into Varanasi (120 km away) or Lucknow (200 km away) as both of these airports are much better serviced. You can give a call to the numbers below or can send an email to bookings.siddhaashram@gmail.com if you want to be picked up from airport.

By train
Allahabad is situated on the trunk train route from Delhi to Kolkata and from Mumbai to Kolkata, so it is well-connected by trains. Innumerable trains stop at Allahabad. The city has four railway stations, Daragang (near the confluence of the rivers Ganga and Yamuna), Prayag (near the University), Rambagh (city centre), and Allahabad Junction (the main station). In addition, another temparary railway station known as Prayag Ghat (to be distinguished from Prayag) is used during important religious festivals for the better management and control of extra pilgrim traffic on those occasions. You can give a call to the numbers below or can send an email to bookings.siddhaashram@gmail.com if you want to be picked up from airport.

Allahabad is on NH2 and NH27 and is, therefore, well connected by road. Several buses ply to and from nearby cities and towns.
