The lucid writing style of the author enables the readers to experience Lucknow’s fall from the days of opulence and splendour to those of the British domination brought about by the Nawab’s lack of foresight and inefficiency.

Lucknow has a remarkably fascinating history – from the days of Nawabi splendour and ostentation to the struggle against the British – and was one of the main centers of the 1857 revolt. Each of the numerous architectural remains in the city bears testimony to some historical event or the other.

This book attempts to tell the history of the city through these monuments – be it the inimitable Imambara, the Residency, the Moti Mahal, the Walaiti Bagh or Begum Kothi.
