Around 5 mins walk fromthe main entrance of La Martiniere school campus main gate, it is a grand architecture to click pictures of. A must visit if you are on a sightseeing trip to Lucknow.

It is very FRENCH in its design made by the French general.it is big and a must see as French architecture in this part is very uncommon.Nearby is river gomti who makes it more picturesque. It is not well maintained like all the historic monuments of Lucknow and has witnessed some BOLLYWOOD SHOOTINGS.

La Martiniere Boys' College also mentioned as 'Constantia' is one of the best French architecture in India made by the famous French General Claude Martin. Many films like 'Gadar' and 'Always Kabhi Kabhi' were shot here. It is also the only school in the world to have won battle honors.
