About La Martiniere College and The Constantia

La Martiniere College in Lucknow is one of the three Martiniere institutions in the world, the other two being located in Kolkata and Lyon, France. These institutions were founded in memory of Major General Claude Martin to honor his will, using his estatesas the location for their campuses. The institutions in Kolkata andLucknow have been separated to create different colleges for Boys and Girls while the three schools in Lyon are co-educational. At Lucknow, Martiniere Boys’ College was founded in 1845 and the Girls’ College was established in 1869. The college at Lucknow stands as an institution imparting education, but it is also the monument that can quite possibly be the last remaining evidence of foreign architecture in Lucknow or the state of Uttar Pradesh, as Mughal rulers destroyed all ancient monuments to establish their culture in these places. The association of this institute with the mutiny of 1857 has made it an integral part of India’s struggle for independence.
