A nice old structure built in 19th century which is now established as college. The design was very unique and very nice. The place was well built and situated in the heart of the city.

One may question how a college can rank as high as it is reflecting on this trip advisor page. However, one has to visit this architectural marble to witness why these words are said about it. Its not only an educational institute but a monument in itself. A must visit. However, entries to certain location would be restricted.

The palace which was build by Major General Claude Martin today houses one of the most prestigious educational institutions of India. An architectural marvel and a must see when you are visiting Lucknow. By taking permission try to visit the library and the chapel. The only School in the world to have a battle of honors..

The building was built by the very colourful Major General Claude Martin, among many other buildings in Lucknow. He started his life as a coolie in France, then became an architect, a general in the British Army, a gambler, and tried to give Lucknow (in cooperation with the Nawabs) a very Parisien look through architectures and buildings. there are many...

La Martiniere College was built in 1845 by Gen. Claude Martin, an officer of the East India Company. His tomb is within the premises. The architecture is an unusual mix of styles with an array of eerie statues. The Chapel is definitely worth a visit and there are several paintings, some done by the old boys, which are quite impressive.... More
