about lucknow

The origin & history of Lucknow is truly intriguing not just to the historians but also to the common man. The
history of Lucknow can be traced back to the ancient times of the Suryavanshi Dynasty. It is said that
Lakshmana, who was the brother of Lord Rama, laid the foundation of the ancient city. This was near the
Gomti River on an elevated piece of land. It was then called Lakshmanpur. However, the city came into notice
only during the 18th Century.
It was during the year 1720 when the great Mughal emperors began to appoint Nawabs in order to ensure
smooth administration in the province. In the year 1732, Mohammad Amir Saadat Khan was appointed as the
viceroyal of Awadh, in which Lucknow was a major province. It was then that the powerful dynasty of the
Nawab, which changed the history of this unknown place. Under the rule of the Nawabs, Lucknow flourished
like never before. After 1755, Lucknow grew by leaps and bounds under the rule of the fourth Nawab
Asaf-ud-Daula. Lucknow flourished in each and every aspect, which includes poetry, dance, music and the
other finer aspects of the lifestyle of Lucknow.
It was when the British came to India that Lucknow was made into an administrative capital. There were many
uprisings during the British rule by Indian radicals and many ghastly incidents left Lucknow with bad
memories. However, after independence Lucknow was declared the capital of the state of Uttar Pradesh by the
Government of India. Since then it has progressed beautifully, merging skillfully the past with the present.
