Lucknow Tours

LucknowLucknow is perhaps the most romantic of capital towns in India. There is no city where it is so simple to turn back the pages of history and look into the colourful days of Nawabs and Begums, through the eyes of those who claim to have personal knowledge of court and customs, secrets and intrigues. Lucknow is famous for its gold and silver brocades, silverware, clay figurines and pottery.

Sightseeing at Lucknow -
Bara Imambara : Built in the year 1784 by the champion of charity Nawab Asaf ud Daula, the Bara Imambara provided food to the famine stricken subjects of the Nawab. The monument is known for its simplicity of style, sheer proportion and symmetry. To the left of the Imambara is a grand mosque. To the right is a row of cloisters concealing a huge well known as the Baoli.

Clock Tower : The beautiful clock tower, constructed in 1887, is the tallest Clock Tower in India and one of the finest examples of British Architecture in India. The 221 feet tall structure was erected by Nawab Nasir-ud-din Haider to mark the arrival of Sir George Couper, Ist Lieutenant Governor of United province of Avadh in the year 1887.

Jama Masjid : The construction of this mosque was started in 1840 by Mohammad Ali Shah but it was finally completed by his wife Begum Malika Jahan after his death. This splendid mosque built in the typical Mughal style lies to the west of the Hussainabad Imambara. It is entirely free from pseudo Italian art then in vogue in Lucknow.
