Besides the ethos of the Nawabi era of Lucknow , there is a definite stamp of the British Raj on the city of Lucknow. The city being a residence of the British Resident who ruled the province of Awadh after snatching power from the last Nawab – Wajid Ali Shah. Lucknow also played a great part in the 1887 uprising that the British called Mutiny and we refer to as our first call for Freedom . Lucknow was one of the major battleground and the Residency bears testimony to the same. Besides other landmarks like Dilkusha and Sikander Baghdad. Residency is now maintained by the ASI as a heritage site and scores of people visit it everyday- from love birds seeking a quiet refuge to sundry tourists to, at times, some Anglo Indian or British Non residents searching for the graves of their ancestors !
