about dilkusha kothi palace

Dilkusha Kothi Palace, now  partly in-ruins structure, gives an insight into the memories of bygone eras. Built in the year 1800 by Major Gore Ouseley, a Britisher who was a friend of the then Nawab of Awadh, Saadat Ali Khan, this monument was once a hunting lodge as well as a summer retreat of the rulers. The architectural style of this three-storeyed monument is different from the usual Indian style of that period as the building was designed in the European Baroque style. The huge pillars on the front, grand steps leading to those pillars and the spires (which are now barely visible) on the sides of the monument are examples of this style of architecture. 

The Archaeological Survey of India has taken up steps to preserve this place and today, the park around this monument is a favourite place for visitors, mostly during winter for the glorious sunshine.  A visit to this marvellous piece of Lucknow, which is situated near the bank of the river Gomti, will provide you a glimpse of the ancient splendour and style, for which the city was and is famous all over the country.
