Lucknow is a city with a rich historical background and cultural heritage. There are many ruins of old palaces in Lucknow that hint at the luxurious lifestyles of the old Nawabs of Lucknow. The city though small attracts several tourists and has its fair share of parks and other touristy spots. Several of its palaces have accompanying gardens that have now been converted into parks. Here are a few of the best parks in Lucknow.
Dilkusha garden is an adjoining part of the Dilkusha kothi (Palace). While the original kothi stands in ruins, the garden has been rebuilt and is a frequent haunt of the morning walkers and joggers. Walking along the path surrounded by the remains of the kothi and the newly planted flowers is an interesting experience. The ruins add a historical charm to the place, lending it personality and a story. The entrance fee is reasonable and practical.
