world pictures Northern India: Lucknow of the Nawabs

So much for imambaras. Here is the Bara Chattar Manzil, the "great parasol palace" seen from across the River Gomti. It was begun in 1803 by Saadar Ali Khan. Emily Eden saw the place about 30 years later and wrote, "Such a place! The only residence I have coveted in India. Don't you remember reading in the Arabian Nights, Zobeide bets her Garden of Delight against the Caliph's Palace of Pictures! I am sure this was the Garden of Delight!"
