Lucknow, the capital of the state of Uttar Pradesh, is famous for classic monuments of Islamic and British periods, charming bazaars, crowded streets and delicious cuisines. Above all, the city possesses a remarkable history. Lucknow rose to its prominence in the mid-18th century when it became the capital of province of Awadh (Oudh) in colonial India.
Present-day Lucknow is divided into old Lucknow and new Lucknow. While new Lucknow is a well-planned modern city, the history remains with old Lucknow, where even now you can feel its faded grandiosity. Two full days are enough to see all the places of Lucknow, however, if you want to have a feel of the city you should have at least 3 days in hand.
