Lucknow Travel Guide

The heritage city of Lucknow in India was the old capital of the nawabs of Awadh where culture, courtesy and courtly lifestyle reigned supreme. Life in Lucknow was characterised by an old world charm with warmth, hospitality and a genteel formality inherent in every facet of its people. The city saw its most glorious days under the Nawabs when it became a great centre for literature, music, dance, arts and crafts. Contemporary Lucknow is a far cry from the elegance and class of the old Awadh; now, the city is very much a reflection of modern India with unplanned development, crowded streets and polluted air. But the discerning traveller can still glimpse of the aura of those heady days in the heritage sites, old monuments, ruins and inner city lanes and alleyways.

Try Tunde Ke Kebab in the Chowk, the man who actually started this place had only one arm thus the name. This 100 year old place is famous for choicest kebabs even today.
