|Lucknow, The legacy of the imperial
splendour of Lucknow, formerly known as Avadh or Oudh, has always
fascinated people, all over the world. The ambience of Avadh,
has commonly been associated with leisurely habits, etiquette,
fine architecture, delicious food and refinement - the residue
of Nawabi culture. Over the years, the city has preserved this
spirit of the bygone days.
Bara Imambara, This magnificent edifice, recalling the past
glory of the Nawab of Oudh, is known for its simplicity of style,
proportion and symmetry.
Lucknow Residency, Built during 1780-1800, it was once the
political residence of the British officials. Some of the
bitterest eruptions of 1857 occurred here. Cannon marks can
be espied on the walls all around.
La Martiniere, Adopting the salient features of Italian architecture,
and blending them with the finest, indigenous architectural
attributes of the Mughal and Hindu styles, Claude Martine,
a French soldier, designed this building.
