About Rumi Darwaza

The Rumi Darwaza is also known as Turkish Gate since its design is similar to the gateway of Constantinople. However, it is essentially a specimen of the Awadhi architectural style. It was built in the year 1784. The name Rumi has been taken from the present day Rome, the capital of the eastern Roman kingdom. The Gateway stands upright and has a height of 60 feet. The upper part of the gateway is made up of a huge Chattrti, which is an umbrella shaped dome. The dome had been carved in an exquisite manner. A lantern was placed on the top of the Rumi Darwaza. It would lighten up in the night and illuminate the sky presenting an amazing scene. The carved flowers accentuate the beauty of the gateway. Rumi Darwaza lays next to the Asafi Imambara in Lucknow. It is an emblem of the city of Lucknow. In the ancient days, this gateway was used to define the entry point to the city. A visit to the Rumi Darwaza must be on the top of to-do-list of the visitors. You will be stunned to see the fine architectural designs and patterns that have been carved on the walls of the gateway.

Historical Context: Rumi Darwaza was constructed by Asaf-ud-Daula in 1784
