Things to do in Lucknow

The city of Nawabs defines etiquette and civility in the most august manner! Divinely situated along the banks of Gomti River, Lucknow is not only known for its “tehzeeb”, but also for its culture, music, art and poetry. As one of the oldest cities of India, it decorously connects to the history of India, retrograding to the 13th century. After the acquisition of the Nawab of Awadhs, the city rose to the glories of one of the most intellectual cities with superior class and culture. The mannerism of its denizens and their much refined way of living totally changed the face of Lucknow.

The versatility of this endearing city is spread across a wide orbit. It excels in almost every dimension one could possibly think of. Right from music, dance and culture to beauty, sophistication and architecture, Lucknow has the best of them all. For centuries now, the city has been one of the prime metropolitan cities of India. The grandeur of its popularity also makes it one of the most sought after tourist destinations in the country. Every year thousands of tourists throng the city to be a part of its mystical charm and tantalising warmth.

While the city of Nawabs is sprouting with adoration, if you still haven’t had a chance to experience its warm hospitality, today I will give you ten reasons why you should do it now!
