Historic Site Tourist Spot
Marvel at the imposing structure of Roomi Darwaza, an impressive gate in downtown Lucknow. Modeled after the Sublime Porte in Istanbul, this 18 m (60 ft) tall gateway features an elaborate carving of the main arch flanked by two slim observation towers. Built in 1784 in Awadian Mughal tradition, the gate guarded an ancient entrance to Lucknow through the main pointed arch, masterfully carved on the outer rim. After this point, traffic on the road below splits through three smaller pointed arches. Named Rumi in honor of the Eastern Roman Empire--the predecessor of Istanbul--the structure features jets of water rushing out of the sides of the arch from stone flower buds.

  • Rumi Darwaza in Lucknow During summer days at mid afternoon, when sun is top right up. Generally it's very busy lane, just during the Ramzan prayer time seems this place so vacant.
