Lucknow  Tour India

Lucknow Tour India Lucknow, the ‘golden city of the east’ retains an old world charm that fascinates one an all. Regarded as one of the finest cities of India, Lucknow emanates a culture that combines emotional warmth, a high degree of sophistication, courtesy and a love for gracious living.

Lucknow is the capital city of Uttar Pradesh. A city which saw great rulers and dynasties come and go, and in the process leave indelible impressions. Excavations at Lucknow have revealed a civilization of the pre-Christian era.

Lying on the banks of river Gomti, this beautiful city was the capital of the Wazirs and Nawabs of Avadh (Oudh) two centuries ago. 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 by-word for gracious living. 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 centre 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.

Lucknow is a city synonymous with the Nawabi Culture. The imperialistic splendor and magnificence of the Nawabi Era has been glorified and eulogized down the ages by writers, poets and historians alike.

Tremors of time have not effaced Lucknow of its cultural heritage and traditions, which once contributed in creating the city incomparable in its times. As the 18th century seat of the Nawabs of Avadh, Lucknow flourished becoming an important political and cultural center, rivaling Delhi in its patronage to art and literature. It was during this time that culture and architecture synthesized emerging in a distinct form now so typical to the Lucknow culture.
