Residency Buildings | 20 Onwards

The Residency complex was set up on the bank of river Gomti in 1775 by Nawab Asaf-ud-daula (A.D. 1775-1795) for the British resident, after the shifting of capital from Faizabad to Lucknow. The main Residency building was three storeyed having a Tah-Khana (undergound chamber) under its main block, it was constructed during the reign of Nawab Saadat Ali Khan (A.D. 1798-1814) which was used by the Resident and the Chief Commissioner of Awadh till 1857. The ruins of the Residency remind of the hostoric seize of the British stronghold by the Awadh forces in 1857 under the leadership of Begum Hazrat Mahal (Wife of Nawab Wajid Ali Shah), Maulvi Ahmad-ulla Shah and several Taluqadars with the full co-operation of the people of Awadh.
