Lucknow is a beautiful city. That’s what my friends from Lucknow would always say. For many years, I experienced Lucknow and its famed culture through their eyes and stories about the city. I improved my spoken Hindi (or Hindustani as they preferred to call it) by speaking the language with them, and over the years came to speak the language like a native of Lucknow. At least that’s what my friends would say. But I never managed a visit a visit to Lucknow in all these years. Till last month, that is.
When I got off the overnight train that brought me to Lucknow from Varanasi at 7.00 am that March morning, I didn’t feel like I was in a strange place. Instead, I felt like I was in a familiar place, with the stunning red and white Char Bagh station welcoming me like an old, old friend.

Really not too many draws here. It is a dense Indian city, full of traffic and pollution. There are some old Munghal buildings worth seeing if you are around the way anyways. The most common answer to the question, "what is there to do in Lucknow?", is "nothing".
