Allahabad is one of the largest and most populous districts in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Also it is referred as East London.

On the streets of the city we see outdoor barbers, a street market with all kinds of products, an overloaded carrier, passers-by buyers, cyclists, an elephant who eats the foliage of a tree.

We, also, see the typical dome of a Hindu temple, women and men who wash their clothes as they hit them in flat stones on the banks of the Ganges and some laundry stretched out to dry.

Creator's description

If you haven’t got a private barber you can always go to a street barber, of course.
From the public laundry we go to visit some of the Mogul monuments of Allahabad, one of which is the tomb of Prince Khusru, son of the Emperor Jahangir.
In contrast to the old Moslem monuments here is a new Hindu monument in course of construction. It depicts Lord Krishna, one of the heroes of Hindu mythology, together with his charioteer Arjun.
