Lucknow, a city which upholds many cultures, heritage and arts of Uttar Pradesh, resonating in every corner. It gained prominence when Nawab Asaf-ud-Daula shifted the capital of Awadh from Faizabad to this city in 1775. They were great patrons of arts and laid the foundation from which Lucknowi culture emerged. Whether Lucknow’s mesmerizing architecture, sweetness in its language, elegant hospitality, and sophistication in its culture, exquisite crafts or the mouth-watering cuisine, this city never fails to win hearts of every traveller. Modern day Lucknow is a spectacular synthesis of past and present. It is a bustling capital city spreading both sides of the River Gomti with sprawling parks, British Era buildings and old monuments. Lucknow is famous for its charm, nazakat (Elegance) and nafasat (Refinement) – which is holding onto this land since time immemorial.
