Dr. Ambedkar Park, Lucknow

(260+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Pay tribute to one of India's strident social reformers at Dr. Ambedkar Park. A solemn row of 62 elephants leads to the park's main focus, a memorial to Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, leader of a Buddhist movement and tireless campaigner against social discrimination, especially towards the Untouchable class. Opposite to the memorial, a small museum displays statues of other important figures. Visit the 24 m (80 ft) pyramidal monument for sweeping views over the expansive red sandstone memorial. Bring plenty of water and sunblock when exploring the area, and consider coming back at night to see the sculptures vibrantly illuminated. Dr. Ambedkar Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Lucknow Edition.

  • It is a beautiful park in Lucknow, but only rock and rock monuments. Very hot during summer days. No play area for kids, no cafeteria. Several statues of elephants, Mayawati and Ambedkar. Good for winter visit.
  • Can't say that's a park! No greenery, no swings, no benches, no water, no food, no shade, no jogging tracks. Just marbled floor that too uneven/plain...3 steps up then 3 steps down all the way so one can't even skate or walk without worry...not suitable for any sports as well. Entry ticket 10/- per person. No card or wallets are accepted...only cash. It's hot in summertime and too cold in winters because of marbles and architectural design. Just open space and lamps in the evening. Doesn't serve any purpose.
  • Only rock sculptures and some bonsai trees. Still, well maintained and awesome park. Very hot during summer, no shades or shelters available
  • You rightly mentioned in the end – it’s not a place but a true experience to be at The Ambedkar Memorial Park. It brought back good old memories of our visit when we travelled with my parents, though it was quite a few years back. But each time you visit the Ambedkar Memorial Park, it always seems like you are seeing it for the first time – been there twice and feel like going again and again πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend, both of you. πŸ™‚
  • First impression we get the Monumental and grand scale of Architecture in this park..very unique buildings, Sculptures and huge open space with excellent and skillful details have been found here. The rows of life-size statues of elephants , fountains, walkways are very nicely placed . The sunset view here is just awesome.. and then the night view of the complex..
