The Nawab capital of dance, art & Mughlai cuisine

Once a capital of the Nawabs, the Mughal empire rulers, Lucknow has long been a centre of culture and art, and is the birthplace of the traditional dance form Kathak and numerous musicians. The city shows an interplay of architecture styles: from Turkish and Mughal-styled monuments of numerous imambaras and the mosques, to Gothic, Baroque and French styles introduced by various historical personages – and evokes a past as colourful as its streets today, with flavours as delectable as the nawabi-style, Awadhi cuisine typical to the region.
