The City of Nawabs

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.
