Dilkusha Kothi Lucknow Images




Dilkusha Palace, Lucknow



Dilkusha Kothi is one of the most beautiful monuments in the historic city of Lucknow though today there remains only a few towers as a monument and green beautiful gardens.The house was constructed around 1800 by the British resident Major Gore Ouseley and a friend of the King of Oudh, Nawab Saadat Ali Khan. It was initially intended as a hunting lodge for the nawabs of Oudh although it was later used as a summer resort too. Changes were made to its design by Nawab, King Nasir-ud-Din Haider (1827-1837). This Kothi was shelled during its involvement in the Lucknow siege in 1857.
