Lucknow is the capital city of Uttar Pradesh state with a population of around 3 million permanent residents. Lucknow rose to prominence as a cultural centre during the reign of the Nawabs in the 18th and 19th Centuries. Nawabs were semi-autonomous rulers closely linked to the Mughal Empire. Their status allowed them the funds to engage in patronage of the arts and massive building projects, particularly palaces and mosques. There are lots of these in Lucknow. The most impressive of which is the Bara Imambara.
The Bara Imambara is a massive complex of religious and civil buildings constructed over a period of 7 years from 1784 to 1791. The project took place at a time of famine and provided work for 22,000 local people and is believed to have been conceived of partly as a job creation scheme.
Other notable Lucknow buildings in Lucknow include:
- Husainabad Clock Tower: Constructed in 1881, this 67 metre tall clock incorporates Gothic and Victorian architectural styles.
- Chhota Imambara: Grand mausoleum and religious hall constructed in 1838.
- Rumi Darwaza: Also known as the Turkish Gate, the Rumi Darwaza is a 20 metre tall grand gateway to the city built in 1784.
- Lucknow Residency and Museum: Grand British colonial residency which was partly destroyed during the Indian Mutiny (also known as the First War of Indian Independence) in 1857. The building have been left in ruins since the fighting ended.
