From all the historical places of Lucknow, I am the most loved residency. There is a lot of peace and there is a lot of things to see. You must definitely go to the museum here.
Very unique, tourist spot, heritage place, mostly you will see couples sitting around and enjoying the nature in Peace. Ample parking space digital camera is banned although you need to have permission or give some money to get the permission.
It's a nice place to see the history. All those buildings stand up with take there story. Maximum buildings have no roof but those are looking very nice. Area of residency is very large area to watch it but all area is so maintain by the government. Sight seen is so beautiful. I like the spot very much....
History and culture always speaks. it can be feel when you visit here. the museum of the location is very attractive and popular. the greenery of the plant make sure that you will enjoy each second of the life. old building show you how our history was. area spreads in large area. location is beautiful. one must visit this locations to see the history of the nation.
Very well preserved in a state particularly known for ignorance of many aspects of life.... Nicely manicured garden and the brick walls against the greens wait to tell many stories of freedom struggle..... As ASI doesn't keep the originality of things (historical monuments), a recreated part of the history would have attract more visitors for the visual appeal.... The area could have a light and sound show....
