Lucknow is known for its old history,
heritage, and architectures.
While travelling I had a chance to visit
Imambaras and Bhool Bhulaiya.
I was happy to see old buildings, hospital,
barrack, but now almost all are in ruins.
Lucknow city’s most famous products have
an intricate kind of embroidery.
Besides this, there is an embroidery done
with Zari and metallic threads.
Jan path market is a place to buy cotton
fabrics and zardori garments.
While shopping, I purchased a Topi,
which was filled with beautiful embroidery.
The city has its own Nawab style cuisine
with different kinds of biryanis.
But the city of Nawabs is the birthplace
of various kinds of delicious kebab.
Malai paan has been a favorite with
people visiting the city of Nawab.
One day, I was sitting on the banks of
river and enjoyed the fantastic scenery.
The River Gomti which has beautiful parks
and walking path, is an ideal place.
