New Delhi, India

The City of Nawabs screams civility and politeness from each of its residents. They will go out of their way to help you should you need it in this beautiful city. Lucknow is home to impressive architecture & heritage, tales of the Independence movement, and not to forget some of the most lip-smacking cuisines in India.

New Delhi, India

amed after a legendary king from the Hindu epics, but was the capital of a major Muslim dynasty that ruled the region – Lucknow is the epitome of cultural synthesis. The language and culture that blossomed in this region came to be identified with all of northern India and the city of Lucknow being the center of it all. Its contribution in the fields of literature, poetry, music and dance is unparalleled. Lucknow’s real charm is not in its monuments, as its proud residents like to claim, but in the Tehzeeb-o-Saqafat or ‘culture and sophistication’ of its people.

Really not too many draws here. It is a dense Indian city, full of traffic and pollution. There are some old Munghal buildings worth seeing if you are around the way anyways. The most common answer to the question, "what is there to do in Lucknow?", is "nothing".

Lucknow is a beautiful city. That’s what my friends from Lucknow would always say. For many years, I experienced Lucknow and its famed culture through their eyes and stories about the city. I improved my spoken Hindi (or Hindustani as they preferred to call it) by speaking the language with them, and over the years came to speak the language like a native of Lucknow. At least that’s what my friends would say. But I never managed a visit a visit to Lucknow in all these years. Till last month, that is.

When I got off the overnight train that brought me to Lucknow from Varanasi at 7.00 am that March morning, I didn’t feel like I was in a strange place. Instead, I felt like I was in a familiar place, with the stunning red and white Char Bagh station welcoming me like an old, old friend.
