Lucknow, the former seat of the rulers of Avadh, is the capital of the state of Uttar Pradesh, a city of gardens, famous for its chikan embroidery and gold and silver brocade. 

Its courtly tradition has endowed it with graceful architecture of gilded cupolas and pinnacles, turrets and minarets steeped in culture and tradition, fine monuments and exotic cuisines.

Places of Interest  

Bara Imambara

Bara Imambara

The Bara Imambara is a tomb built by Asaf-ud-Daula in 1784. It is quite an architectural wonder with beautiful and intricate niches and tall minarets. The famous Bhulbhulaiya (maze) is contained in this monument and myth has it that there are passages from here, which go as far as Jaipur, Delhi and Mumbai ! The central hall of the Imambara is 50 m long and 15 m high and has one of the largest vaulted galleries in the world. There is also the beautiful Rumi Darwaza, adjacent to the Imambara - an example of Muslim architecture with shades of the Byzantine.

Residency

If you are one of those people who looks at monuments and can appreciate what life must have been like then, you must visit the British Residency. Built in 1800, the red brick structure with picturesque lawns is well maintained and has a model room, which helps you gain an understanding of the life lived here. Walk done to the cellars where women and children took refuge during the siege, as also the cemetery.

Sikander Bagh

While Lucknow has much to offer one, it is true that this abundance includes dust and heavy pollution. Which is what makes a trip to the Sikander Bagh even better. Scene of the historical battle of 1857, the Bagh is now a fortified garden with a gateway stamped with the royal insignia of the Nawabs. The lush Botanical Gardens are adjacent and make for a literal breather.

Climate

Lucknow is quite pleasant through the year with temperatures staying rather even and moderate. Summers peak at 36.6C and winters get as low as 11.1C.
