Lucknow – “The City of Nawabs”, Golden City of East, Constantinople of India

It is a city in India and also the Capital of Uttar Pradesh. The Lucknow city which saw great popular rulers and dynasties come and go, and in the process leave indelible impressions. It is believed that Lucknow derives its name from Lakshman (also known as a Lakhan  younger brother of Lord Rama, greatest hero of Suryawanshi Kshatriya clan of India. Ram ordered Lakshman to establish a new town near Ayodhya, the capital of Rama. Lakshman came and built a strong fort. The present Lakshman Teela in Lucknow is believed to be the site of the ancient city of Lakhanpur built by Lakshman, Lucknow city situated  on the banks of the river Gomti, Two centuries ago this beautiful city was the capital of the Wazirs and Nawabs of Avadh (Oudh). It was once the pivot of a unique culture, art and etiquette — an ethos so unique that the term "Lucknavi" culture still continues to be a byword for gracious living.

During the dynasty of Avadh was founded by a Persian named Saadat Khan in 1739 and the laudable work was carried on by his successors till 1814 after which it began to deteriorate. During the reign of Asaf-ud-Daula (1775-1797), Lucknow was at its zenith. It was practically the "Paris of India", the country’s center of art and culture. The year 1857 saw a mutinous Lucknow. The bullet-pierced walls of the Residency speak of the six tumultuous months of the 1857 uprising. The great Imambara, with the Central Hall measuring 162 feet by 53 feet, is one of the largest vaulted galleries in the world.
