Description

The British Residency was constructed in 1800 in Lucknow. Currently, this structure is in ruins and the Archaeological Survey of India has declared that it is a protected monument.

During the revolt of 1857, almost 3000 British individuals had taken refuge at this place. At this time, all the British activities were controlled from Lucknow. Currently, there are the graves of about two thousand British soldiers who were killed in the revolt.

The citizens of Lucknow discuss how the British ran away from their houses and found safety within the British Residency.

This tough test was overcome by only thousand British soldiers. Further, the British troops were triumphant against the Indian forces under Sir Colin Campbell. Presently, this structure is utilized as a government office.

There is also a museum in the premises that is managed by the authorities. The tomb of Sadat Ali Khan, the first nawab of Awadh, is also in this monument. One can also see the Kaisarbagh Palace as well as an observatory that had been built for a British astronomer, Colonel Wilcox.
