Travel Tips for Lucknow

Gomti River

by mixcee

The Gomti, Gumti or Gomati River is a tributary of the Ganges River. According to Hindu mythology the river is the daughter of Sage Vashistha, and bathing in the waters of the Gomati on Ekadashi (the eleventh day of the Sanatana Dharma-Hindu calendar) can wash away one's sins.

The Gomti originates near Madho Tada, Pilibhit, India. It extends 900 km (560 miles) through Uttar Pradesh and meets the Ganges River near Saidpur.

The river is a thin stream until it reaches Mohamadi (about 100 km from its origin) where it is joined by a prominent tributary called the Sarayan River. From here the river is well defined. Another major tributary is the Sai River, which joins near Jaunpur.

After 240 km the Gomti enters Lucknow, through which it meanders for about 12 km. At the entrance point water is lifted from the river for the city's water supply. 25 city drains in the Lucknow area drain into the Gomti. At the downstream end the Gomti barrage impounds the river converting it into a lake.

The cities of Lucknow, Lakhimpur Kheri, Sultanpur and Jaunpur are located on the banks of the Gomti and are the most prominent of the 15 towns located in its catchment area. %c

Residency - Begum Kothi

by Willettsworld

This building originally belonged to Nawab Asaf-ud-Daula and was subsequently sold to some Europeans who ran a business from here. It was later acquired by Vilayati Mahal Makhdarah Laiya who was the Begum of Nasir-ud-din-Haider. After her death, her step-sister Shurfunnisa had an Imambara and mosque built here in the traditional architectural style of Avadh unlike the other building of the Residency.

State Museum

by Willettsworld

The State Museum lies within the zoo grounds. Its exhibits include sculptures, bronzes, prehistoric tools, copper hoards, manuscripts, thankas, scroll paintings, natural history and anthropological specimens, coins, textiles and decorative arts. The museum displays a fascinating collection of coins right from the terracotta coins of the Indus Valley to the coins of the present day. Among other things the museum boasts of an Egyptian Mummy, the pistol of Chanderashekhar Azad, famous freedom fighter and many other works of art that are of historical importance.

Open: Tues-Sun 10.30am-4.30pm. Closed Mondays. Admission: Rs50 for foreigners and Rs20 for stills camera.

Nawabs and Ruins

by virattravels

Lucknow is a city of Nawabs. Or, the city where you can see the Nawabi ruins. Nawabs were the princely rulers of the erstwhile state of Oudh or Awadh, more famous for their ostentatious lifestyle than good governance. I am not a student of history to claim correctness of that impression but then this is the impression which people carry.

Across Lucknow you would see lots of buildings, monuments and museums that take you down the Nawabi lane.

Lucknow today is the capital of Uttar Pradesh (UP), an Indian state that has the highest population but lowest level of economic development. There have been quite a few changes since the days of Nawabs. The modern day Nawabs rule from Vidhan Sabha (Legislative Assembly not Royal Palace) and wear khadi clothes (not embroidered silks) espoused by Mahatma Gandhi during the pre-independence era. Khadi is homespun cotton cloth, which is quite coarse but just the right fabric for scorching Indian summers. There is, however, one unique characteristic, which continues to be the common thread across ruling classes of various eras and that is the ruling class's propensity to be self-serving at the cost of general population. UP's abysmal ranking in terms of various development indicators is a glowing testimony to this observation. Albeit, one point of consolation remains that the loot is now accessible to much wider sections of population. It is the democratization of loot.
