About Dilkusha Kothi Palace

Dilkusha Kothi is actually the remains of an 18th century house that was built by the British resident Major Gore Ouseley, who was a friend of the Nawab Saadat Ali Khan. Built in English baroque style in the quiet part of Lucknow, it is a place that offers a peek into the lifestyle of ancient times. Only a few towers and external walls remain of the main building, although the extensive gardens are still thriving. Built around the year 1800, it was initially meant to be a hunting lodge for the Nawabs of Oudh and was later used as a summer resort. The walls of the building were patterned and surprisingly, there was no inner courtyard found within the house as per the norms of traditional Indian architecture. The area of the building was not very widespread, although it was tall by architectural standards. There is a Seaton Delaval Hall here, which bears a startling resemblance to the style of Seaton Delaval Hall in Northumberland, England.
