ABOUT THE BOOK

Because of its numerous facets, the city of Lucknow continues to fascinate historians, researchers and heritage enthusiasts alike. Actually, this historic city is much more than its famed Nawabi culture, which includes its monuments, cuisine, apparel, handicrafts, language and laid-back lifestyle. The present book is an endeavour to bring forth certain aspects of Lucknow which are not usually discussed or written about. Embellished with ample illustrations, it is an attempt to enable the reader to appreciate and understand the diverse nuances of the city and hopefully be transposed to another place and time, while going through the contents.
