1857-memorial Museum Residency, Lucknow Reviews
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.
A very interesting place that takes you back in time. One can imagine the grandeur,the luxury, leisure of high class living. It also shows the ravages of war
This place is held in the residency... In here you are not allow to take camera or mobile phones. Because in this site there are so many things you got to know about the ancient time.. our Indian history. I loved it . You will come more closer to your country after watching this. Thank-you.
