About Hazratganj

Shop for trinkets and Lucknawi arts at Hazratganj, which is a major tourist attraction and shopping area located in the heart of the city. It is home to some old bazaars, shopping complexes, restaurants, hotels, theaters and with the advent of time, offices. Nawab Nasiruddin Haider laid the foundation of the Ganj market in 1827 by introducing the China Bazaar and Kaptaan Bazaar. The name of the area was changed to Hazratganj after Nawab Amjad Ali Shah in the year 1842. Once the British took over the city after the First War of Independence in 1857, Hazratganj was remodeled after London's ‘Queen Street’. Many old Mughal style buildings were demolished and replaced by new European structures. The Ring Theatre situated in the complex served as the Ball Room and theatre for the British officers and was called the 'Entertainment Centre' back in the day. Some years later, it was converted into a special court for the hearing of the Kakori Conspiracy case. Between the years 1929-32, the building was renovated with Gothic style architecture and a clock tower was constructed in the center.
