Residency is historic and landmark ancient place of India's freedom struggle and Awadh empire revolution against English.

One Must visit this place in Lucknow. It is with in the city and well communicate. It occupies a vast area and it's well maintains. One can get to see the ruins of British colonies which were demolished by our National Freedom fighter. It Carries Some heart wrenching moments during the sepoy mutiny.

Remnants of a fierce battle with the British during the First Battle of Independence in India. The place is ruins but does make you feel nostalgic. There is a small museum as well. Will be appreciated by those with a historical bent of mind
