Lucknow Tours and Travels
Lucknow is the capital of India's most populous state – Uttar Pradesh. Lucknow was the abode of the Nawabs of Avadh, and their regal pastimes and pleasures were legendary. They refined their formal speech, extolling virtues to high exaggeration, were fond of song and dance and nurtured Urdu verse as well as the Kathak school of court dance. The foods from the Royal kitchen were the result of creative experimentation, delicate in taste. And their monuments excelled in the use of arches, pavillions and domes.Lucknow owes a lot of its growth into an elegant city to a great ruler, Nawab Asaf-Ud-Daula, who shifted his capital here from Faizabad in 1775 AD, a patron of the arts and builder of palaces, gardens, mosques and shrines.Read More
