Excellent collections with reasonable prices for all the chikankari items at Lucknow Chikan Emporium at Chowk, Lucknow, Must visit place in case you want to buy some chikankari clothes. There are other places also, e.g. Janpath Market in Hazratganj, but you will get same collection with more expensive prices.

Liked the hotel stay, visited some good places like Hazratganj, Imambara and bhulbhulaiya are worth visiting. It tells a tale about old Indian times.

Our guide Narayan took us down into this lane after our day tour and we could see each of the handicrafts that we only read about till now. I think this is a must do when one is in Lucknow. Ensure you book an individual tour with Tornos, as in a group tour, you might miss a lot of places that are rather more interesting.

The Chowk or the Epicentre as it used to be at one era during the Reign of the Nawabs of Lucknow stands today as a reminiscent of the Grand Past. It has seen many twists & turns of Fate and today stands Grand as still the Center of the Old Taste and Handicraft. The Famous Tunday Kebabs original Shop is still there athrong with its connesiures in the evening. The traditional Handicraft of Lucknow: the Chikan work over the cloth & Dress material is still abound and you get the best collection and bargains here. Another attraction is the Yogurt drink( Lassi) at Shree; On a cold winter morning the Butter sponges( Makkhan Malai) is a delicacy. A must visit during the Ramadan month in the evening which still holds a similar picture as it used to be ages ago. Nostalgic!
