Rumi Darwaza - Review

The Rumi Darwaza of Lucknow is one of the most impressive architecture. It was built in the year 1784 by Nawab Asaf-ud-daula. It is similar in its architectural design to Turkish architecture. The Rumi Darwaza goes upto a staggering height of 60 feet. At the top is an umbrella carved beautifully, that can be accessed by a staircase. The Rumi Darwaza is one of the finest gateways that there is in the country. Atop the structure a lamp was placed that would light up the whole place at night. Jet sprays of water would spout out of it at night from the centres of the flower bud that makes it look like gateway of paradise. The Rumi Darwaza is a must visit if you are travelling to Lucknow.

  • Must visit when you are in Lucknow. Lit up during nights ,it's a wonderful feeling to pass through it via rickshaw. The traffic is pretty good if you try to take some pictures of the gate alone, you might need to wait a bit. It's a pretty amd historical thing to be captured.

  • very unique creation of the history. many people come Lucknow only to visit this location. in many Bollywood movie this location taken shot. this is the witness of the history of Indian culture and architect. recommended to visit this place at evening in light mode. you will feel very unique when you visit this place.

  • लखनऊ में बड़ा इमामबाड़ा की तर्ज पर ही रूमी दरवाजेका निर्माण भी अकाल राहत प्रोजेक्ट के अन्तर्गत किया गया है। नवाब आसफउद्दौला ने यह दरवाजा 1783 ई. में अकाल के दौरान बनवाया था ताकि लोगों को रोजगार मिल सके। अवध वास्तुकला के प्रतीक इस दरवाजे को तुर्किश गेटवे कहा जाता है। रूमी दरवाजा कांस्टेनटिनोपल के दरवाजों के समान दिखाई देता है। यह इमारत 60 फीट ऊंची है।  Y

  • This is one of the must visit places if you visiting Lucknow. Located in the old city of Lucknow, it should be visited along with the Bara Imambara. A lot of popular eating options exist in this part of the city and do your research to know the best eating options before you come here. Take a walk in the lanes in the evening but try to avoid the muck in the sidewalks 😝

  • Beautiful place, nicely renovated,nearby park is well decorated as well. Nice place to hang out. Horse riding, camel riding and toy bikes and toy cars also available for kids. Overall wonderful place to enjoy with kids. Imambada is also adjacent location. Historical place.
