  • Reminds you of your history lessons you had in your childhood, about the 1857 Uprising revolt. Its thrilling to visit the site where the revolt took place and it is well-preserved. You can see canon marks on the ruins. It's like revisiting a place of such a historical significance and so old. It's nerving to stand between those old walls and image the dimension of living spaces and all. In fact, living spaces were much smaller than anticipated, with low-rise entrance. A must visit.

  • The war of independence started from Lucknow's british residency. This memorial holds such good information. Must visit for all.

  • Small museum in which they show a clip of ten mins about the residency in which the museum is built. One time go! Better read it on internet and see other places.

  • Beautiful place and well maintained. The ruins give a great feeling about old times.
