DAY SCHOOLS IN LUCKNOW
If you believe the cliché, you'll need to get lost to visit Lucknow, one of India's ancient towns. Lucknow is a heritage city with thousands of years of history and a cultural potpourri of food, music, art, and handcraft. During its voyage under the British Raj from the Sultanate Era to the present decade, the city has become a treasure trove of fascinating facts.
- To the average person, Lucknow's origins are a myth. It can be traced back to the Suryavanshi Dynasty thousands of years ago. According to tradition, Lakshmana, who accompanied Lord Rama in exile, was the creator of Lucknow, which was built on and around an elevated piece of ground near the Gomati River. Lakshmanpur was the name given to it at the time.
- The Mughal Empire is responsible for Lucknow's cultural and historical development. In the first half of the 18th century, when the Mughal Emperors chose Nawabs to oversee the administration of Awadh, Lucknow became the cradle of the Nawabi dynasty.
- Lucknow has grown in leaps and bounds in many disciplines, including poetry, music, dance, and others, since the second half of the 18th century. The reign of the fourth Nawab, Asaf-ud-Daula, was the city's golden age.
- During the British rule of India, the administrative capital was moved from Awadh to Lucknow. Many uprisings against British rule took place in the city. Lucknow, on the other hand, became the capital of Uttar Pradesh after India's independence in 1947.
- During the 1857 Rebellion, India's first battle of independence from British rule, Lucknow was a hotbed of revolutionary activity. From Lucknow to Kanpur, and ultimately to Bengal, the insurrection spread like wildfire.
- Sir Henry Lawrence imprisoned the then-Nawab Wajid Ali Shah when the British took complete control of Awadh. In 1856, the nawab was exiled to Calcutta (now Kolkata). Begum Hazrat Mahal, his wife, was forced to seek refuge in Nepal.
- Lucknow supported the Khilafat Movement, a Muslim political agitation for the secession of an Islamic kingdom from British India, at the turn of the twentieth century.
- Lucknow is one of North India's cultural hubs. The Nawabs' reign in the city is primarily noted for its cultural splendour. The Nawabs of Lucknow were art and cultural patrons. They supported not only musical and dance endeavours, but also the creation of historic monuments that are still standing today.
- Turkish architecture has an impact on Lucknow's past, which is one of the interesting facts about Lucknow. For example, the Rumi Darwaza (60 feet tall), Lucknow's mediaeval entryway, is identical to the Gateway to Constantinople. The Rumi Darwaza is known as the Turkish Gateway for this reason.
