The upper storey is adorned with astounding maze known as Bhul Bhulaiya is a structure with multiple identical arches. The Bara Imambara is believed to be world’s largest unsupported structure portraying the great Mughal architecture. It also holds other places like Asifi Mosque, Shahi Bawali, Rumi Darwaja.

The structure have not used any metal or wood during its construction.

The Chowk is one of the oldest street markets in the entire northern part of India. From Badshahs to Britishers, this market has seen a lot of customers. It lies in the very heart of the city which is a doorway to peek into the amazing culture of Lucknow. The chikan work and kebabs from this Chowk should be experienced by all the visitors which will linger as a lifetime memory till a long way. The Chowk holds more than 5000 shops which are quaint, small, ornate or large with chikankari and Zardosi works adorning the walls of the shops with other items like the shoes and ittar from real flowers. The vibes of the Oudh can be still felt by us while walking down the market.

Dr. Ambedkar Park
The Ambedkar park was built by Mayawati government in Lucknow to honour the great leaders who worked hard for equality and human justice like Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, Kanshi Ram and so on. The park is one of the pleasant venue to be visited by any tourists that was built in a budget of seven billion rupees. The park is decorated with stone sculptures and marble statues. There is a particular place where we can spot 62 human size elephant structures on either sides that are made with marble. There is a 80-foot pyramid type structure that offers a 360 degree view of the entire park.

Rumi Darwaza
Rumi Darwaza is a very old structure that portrays the Awadhi architecture liberating the memories of the city’s rise and fall. The Nawab of Lucknow offered meals everyday for the construction of this gateway when a great famine struck the city. It’s flattering architecture is similar to that of Istanbul, Turkey. This gigantic doorway to the royal residence have not lost its charm even in the modern world. It still stands strong and proudly letting the pedestrians and commuters swarming all day long. Adjacent to Rumi Darwaza, we can spot tallest clock tower in India built in 1881 that is 67 meter high glimmering with Victorian-Gothic architecture and a strong 14 feet long pendulum and the dial shaped into 12 petalled flower.

October to March is the best time to visit Lucknow as December and January covers the city with mild fog. Summers falling in April to June are hot and dry with temperatures rising as high as 45 degrees Celsius while monsoons usually creates high humidity, yet tourists ignore the climate and visit the attractions. The winter provides an enjoyable climate for the tourists with subtle breeze and mild sunshine.

The Nawabi cuisines has so much to offer for us. The most scrumptious food that we ask for so many plates are these lip smacking kebabs. Galawati Kebab or Galauti Kebab melts in your taste buds which are made with unripened papaya and minced meat with spices. Boti Kabab is another finger licking appetizer that is cooked under intense heat. Tunday Kebab contains at least 100 spices mixed together with meat and cooked.
