There are three Martiniere institutions in the world, La Martiniere College in Lucknow is one of them, and the other two are located in Kolkata and Lyon, France. These institutions were founded in memory of Major General Claude Martin to honour his will, using his estates as the location for their campuses. Martiniere Boys’ College, Lucknow, was established in 1845, and the Girls’ College was founded in 1869. The college in Lucknow stands as an institution imparting education. The Mughal rulers destroyed all ancient monuments to establish their culture in these places, so this monument can quite possibly be the last remaining evidence of foreign architecture in Lucknow or the state of Uttar Pradesh. La Martinere had a relation with the mutiny of 1857 which has made it an important part of India’s struggle for independence.
