Located in the Northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, Lucknow is the cultural, political, and business capital of this area. The city can be reached by plane from nearly all major parts of India including Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore, as well as connections to major cities in the Middle East, including Dubai, all arriving at Chaudhary Charan Singh Airport
Lucknow has a very rich cultural history, and today the city is home to many old buildings, places of worship, and many places in which to experience the distinctive local cuisine and cultural scene of this region. The Ruins of Lucknow Residency and Museum
is a great place to start this exploration, as the museum was once the scene of the 1857 battle for independence from the British. It is now a great place in which to enjoy a respite from the heat and noise of the city, instead taking a relaxing stroll among the leafy and shaded grounds.
The complex tomb systems of this city are another attraction that should not be missed while in Lucknow. One of the more famous of these is Bara Imambara
, which features an impressive labyrinth, an interesting way to spend an afternoon. As Lucknow is a very large city, the hotels are spread out across the different districts and many can be found right in the city center, perfect for seeing the most popular attractions without having to travel too far outside of the city center.
