Architecture and culture reached at its height under the Awadh rule. Kathak, Khayal, Thumri, Dadra, Qawali, Ghazals were given great importance.
The legacy of the exquisite embroidery can be seen even today. In the Awadh architecture we can see notice the fusion of the accidental and the oriental style.
There are several attractions which attract tourist attentions. (i) Sa’adat All’s Tomb : The twin maqbaras of Sa’adat Ali Khan and Khurshid Zadi, near Begum Hazrat Mahal Park, are good examples of Awadh architecture.
The proportionate domes with elegant kiosks and above all, well-balanced architectural design makes them very beautiful and attractive. (ii) Lakshman Tila: It contains the famous Alamgiri.
Mosque built by Sultan Alt, Governor of the province of Awadh during the rule of Aurangzeb. The mosque is known for its outstanding symmetry of form and sobriety of decoration. (iii) Bara Imambara : It was built by Nawab Asaf-ud-Daula in 1784.
It was built to provide food to the famine stricken subjects of the Nawab.
The monument is simple in style. (iv) Rumi Darwaza:
It leads to the outer section of the Bara Imambara.
It is believed that it resembles one of the gates of Constantinople. It is a good example of Awadh architecture.
