Now in ruins, this building has been declared a protected monument by the Archaeological Survey of India. The complex contains the graves of around 2,000 British soldiers who died in the Revolt of 1857. The tomb of Nawab Saadat Ali Khan, who was the first Nawab of Awadh, is also located in the complex. Kaisarbagh Palace and an observatory built for Colonel Wilcox, who was a British astronomer, are also present within the complex.
Wonderful place to look around and to brush our knowledge on history. Very well maintained
