Day 1

I landed in Delhi from an international flight and had a couple of days to explore.I had planned for a trip to the historical city of Lucknow to utilise these days.I took a cab from airport to New Delhi Railway station where I boarded the GOMTI EXPRESS to Lucknow.The train started going through villages and cities of UP.I reached Lucknow at night as the train was late.Immediately after coming out of the station I took an auto rickshaw to my pre booked hotel.The auto driver was very friendly and we planned for my next 2 days itinerary on the way to hotel itself.

Day 2

As decided with my auto driver Illeas bhai, we started my trip at around 9:30 in the morning.

Lucknow is the capital of Uttar Pradesh, India.One can see several historical sites and monuments in this city.The city looked completely different from any other state capital of India.Today I visited the following places:

1.Qadam Rasool

2.Bada imambara coplex and bhoolbhoolaiya

3.Chhota imambara

4.Clock tower

5.Pictures Gallery

I always prefer hiring guides while travelling to historical attractions,it helps me to connect with the place.

After visiting these places, I went for lunch to the famous lucknowi restaurant DASTARKHWAN.
