About lucknow

The first thing that you will notice about Lucknow is its old-world charm, mirrored by its exquisite monuments, British-era buildings, and the well-known ‘Lakhnawi Tehzeeb,' the etiquette of the people of Lucknow. The ‘City of Nawabs’ is the capital of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The legacy of the Nawabs of Lucknow has been passed down through generations, bestowing the city with its well-known culture and delectable cuisine. The city continues to be at the forefront of culture, education, commerce, finance and tourism in the modern world. But its heritage stays untouched by commercialization and urbanization.\r\n\r\nHome to several historic monuments, Lucknow is a must-visit place for history buffs. Chota Imambara is a congregation hall for Shia Muslims. Situated nearby is the Bara Imambara, a shrine built by Shia Muslims. Dilkusha Kothi is an 18th-century house built by the British. If you want to explore the beauty of nature, you can visit Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Park, Ambedkar Memorial Park, Janeshwar Mishra Park and Lucknow Zoo. Even the markets of Lucknow have historical importance. Chowk Market is one of the oldest in the city, where the streets are lined with restaurants serving authentic Nawabi cuisine and shops serving colorful ornaments, handicrafts and ‘chickan’ garments.
