Another lesser-known, yet, an incredible historical monument in Lucknow is Alambagh Palace. The history of this palace begins with its construction between 1847 - 1856. It was Nawab Wajid Ali Shah who built this imposing tourist site in Lucknow for his wife Alam Aara. Alambagh Palace is one of the most well-preserved historical tourist sites in Lucknow. This is a two-storeyed palace with an impressive architecture which includes spacious rooms and halls. Not just this, the rooftop of these rooms are quite high. The building complex also includes a gateway, which is known as Alambagh Gateway. It was designed by a local artist, Chhote Khan. At present, this gateway not only gives the entrance to the palace but also to Chander Nagar Colony. An interesting thing to know here is that the palace along with the gateway was built of lakhauri bricks. Coming on to the interior of this must-see tourist place in Lucknow includes walls that were once adorned with floral design.
