Lucknow Overview

The City of Nawabs is known to be the capital of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Lucknow’s elegance is mirrored by its captivating monuments, the well-known ‘Lakhnawi Tehzeeb,’ of the people of Lucknow, and the British-era buildings; these are the first thing you will notice about Lucknow. The city’s prominent culture and savory cuisine are bestowed by the legacy of the Nawabs of Lucknow that has been passed down through generations. Although the city of Lucknow continues to lead the caravan of culture, tourism, education, commerce, and finance in the modern world yet, the old-world charm of its heritage stays untouched by urbanization and commercialization. Lucknow is a must-visit place for history fanatics, housing several historical monuments. Bara Imambara is a shrine built by Shia Muslims; nearby is the Chota Imambara, a gathering hall for Shia Muslims. Another historical masterpiece Dilkusha Kothi was built by the British in the 18th century. You can visit Ambedkar Memorial Park, Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Park, Lucknow Zoo, and Janeshwar Mishra Park if you want to explore the beauty of nature. Even the markets of Lucknow, like Chowk (Hazratganj) Market, have historical significance; it is one of the oldest in the city, where the streets are blazed with restaurants serving authentic Nawabi cuisine and shops selling famous ‘chikan’ garments, colorful handicrafts, and ornaments.
