Masjid at the Residency complex, Lucknow

Masjid of the Lucknow Residency is one of the beautiful ruins that dot the city of Lucknow. The old plan of the city was such that it was an unbroken, well embellished stretch of buildings, small and large palaces from the area of the Residency right up to the city to the the palace areas of the Nawab.

The Residency has this architectural beauty, replete with bulbous domes and minarets, standing on top of a arched platform. Adjacent to it is an Imambara.

The Residency is a well documented building and played one of the most important roles in the 1857-8 war, probably only next to the war of Delhi.
