About Satkhanda

Well-known as Satkhanda and built in 1842 by Nawab Mohammad Ali Shah, this magnificent structure is a decaying 67m red-brick clock tower. Apparently the tallest in India, it was built in the memory of Sir George Couper, a reform-minded Governor of UP. Despite being ancient the architecture displays a finesse and showcases a blend of Italian style and structural designs. All this makes it a popular tourist destination in Lucknow. Satkhanda is liked mostly for its architectural excellence and the tower looks like a medieval painting of the Tower of Babel. Add it to your must visit list and experience the blend of royalty and architectural elegance at one place. You can also visit nearby places to this tower and plan your itinerary.
