It all began when Nawab Shuja-ud-Daulah, in 1774 agreed to keep one of the British residents stationed in Awadh. On the orders of the Nawab, The Residency building was constructed the next year for the British officers and the staff. Despite starting early, the construction ended only in 1800 during the regime of Nawab Saadat Ali Khan. After completion, The Residency included Muslim shrines, bungalows, high-end buildings, thatched homes and more for higher officials. The Residency was attacked in 1857 which resulted in extensive damage to the property, which is evident to this day in its ruins. This place served as a refuge for over 3000 British inhabitants during the uprising.
