Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh,historically and still fondly known as " Awadh ". Also known as the 'City of Nawabs' or the 'City of Tehzeeb', it has always been a city filled with varied cultures. Let's take you along through our journey to one of the most magnificent and culturally rich city we have ever visitied.
Like the Howrah Bridge and Victoria Memorial for Calcutta (Kolkata), the Rumi Darwaza serves as the logo for Lucknow. It is another architectural gem that was built under the patronage of Nawab Asaf-ud-Daula by his favourite architect, Kifayatullah. Kifayatullah, as you may know was the man behind Lucknow’s Bada Imambara.
