Adorned with British Raj-era architecture, the capital of Uttar Pradesh is painted with ancient history yet remains somewhat undisturbed by the tourist crowd. Lucknow is both historic and modern; the home of several awesome religious and historical monuments, lucious gardens, pink sandstone, marble passageways and so much more.
Lucknow ascended into its eminence as the Nawabs of Avadh. Lucknow is a cultural hub, celebrating culunary arts, music and dance. Finding local and famous restaurants is a must in lucknow. In 1856 the British assumed control over Avadh, thus casting Nawab Wajid Ali Shah into exile. Nawab was bound to a palace in Kolkata (also known as Calcutta). This act was one of many factors behind the First War of Independence (1857), resulting in the raging Seige of Lucknow.
Visit the historical monuments of Lucknow, dive into the cultural diversity or simple enjoy the mouth-watering cuisine.
