  • Nice lucknow ki shaan
  • The highest clock tower in india. Stands lofty on the bank of river gomti. And it is red color. In british architecture style.
  • Why is this building always locked up? Allow tourists to climb up. Or at least get inside and have a look around. Otherwise, I'm sorry but it's no "attraction".
  • The building is standing next to picture gallery and not very far from Chota Imambada. From from here is really beautiful
