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.

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".
