    • THIS ENTRANCE OF GATE WAS CONSTRUCTED BY THE NAWAS SAADAT ALIKHAN IN THE HONOR OF CAPTAIN JOHN BAILLEY.
    • WHO BECAME THE RESIDENT OF LUCKNOW IN THE BEGINNING OF 19TH CENTURY.
    • THE PORTAL CAME TO BE KNOWN AS BALLEY GUARD GATE DURING THE WAR OF 1857.
    • THIS POST WAS UNDER THE COMMAND OF LEUTINENT AITKIN AND HIS NATIVE INFANTRY.
    • DURING THE SIEGE GATES WERE BANKED UP FROM INSIDE WITH EARTH AND A BATTERY FOR 18 POUNDER GUN WAS CONSTRUCTED BUT DUE TO HEAVY ATTACKS FROM THE REVOLUTIONARIES.
    • IT WAS BADLY DAMAGED LIEUTENANT ALEXANDER WHILE WALKING IN FRONT OF THIS GATE WAS KILLED BY A ROUND SHOT DUE TO EXCESSIVE DAMAGE, IT WAS CONSERVED IN RECENT YEARS.

    THE MAIN BUILDING OF RESIDENCY IS NAMED AS "BEGUM KOTHI" WHICH YOU CAN SEE IN MY FIRST PICTURE.

    BEGUM KOTHI

    • BASICALLY THIS BUILDING WAS BUILT BY NAWAB ASAF-UD-DAULA.
    • SUBSEQUENTLY IT WAS SOLD TO SACVILLE MARCUS TAYLOR, ASSISTANT RESIDENT, WHO IN TURN SOLD IT TO GEORGE PRENDERGAST IN 1802.
    • PRENDERGAST SET UP A EUROPEAN SHOP HERE, AND LATER ON SOLD THE HOUSE AND BUILDING TO JOHN CULLODON.
    • MALIKA MUKHDARAH ALIYA OR VILAYATI BEGUM, THE EUROPEAN WIFE OF NAWAB NASIR-UD DIN HAIDER, WAS THE GRAND DAUGHTER OF CULLODON.
    • AFTER THE DEATH OF NASIR-UD-DIN, MUKHDARAH ALIYA ALONG WITH HER MOTHER AND STEP SISTER ASHRAFUNNISA COME TO LIVE HERE, ASHRAFUNNISA BUILT A MOSQUE AND IMAMBARA ADJACENT TO BEGUM KOTHI.
    • THIS IS THE ONLY BUILDING BUILT IN TRADITIONAL ARCHITECTURAL STYLE OF AWADH UNLIKE OTHER BIULDING OF RESIDENCY COMPLEX.
      HERE ARE SIME INNER PHOTOS OF BEGUM KOTHI.

    IMG_20210913_194657.jpg

    THE STAIRS WERE OF WOOD 🪵 AND THEY ARE TOO STRONG,EACH STEPS HAVE MUCH GAP IN BETWEEN,I THOUGHT THIS IS AN OLD STYLE OF ARCHITECTURE TO BUILD STAIRS LIKE THIS.

    *NOW WHEN I ENTERED THE HALF PORTION,I SAW THAT THERE WAS A BOARD OF STEEL FRAME AND,IT WAS NOT ANY SIGN BOARD OR ANYTHING ELSE...IT WAS A BOARD TO HELP BLIND PEOPLE'S AS IT WAS WRITTEN IN BRAILLE...I LOVED THIS THING BECAUSE HARDLY I FOUND THAT THIS TYPE OF THINGS ARE DONE BY THE ASSOCIATES...*****"THE BLIND CAN ALSO SEE THE BEAUTIFUL WORLD BY HIS EYES OF HEART ❤️"

    IMG_20210913_195429.jpg
    AFTER A HALF PORTION YOU WILL COME IN THE MID OF THE MONUMENT AND THERE ARE THREE DIRECTIONS TO EXPLORE.ON LEFT ◀️ THERE WAS A KITCHEN WHERE THE FOOD WAS PREPARED,ON THE RIGHT THERE WAS A BANQUETING HALL AND AT THE FRONT THERE WAS A MUSEUM WHERE WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO VISIT BECAUSE NOW IT WAS THE MAIN OFFICE OF THE RESIDENCY.

    IMG_20210913_191506.jpg

    BANQUETTING HALL

    • THIS HALL WAS CONSTRUCTED BY NAWAB SAADAT ALI KHAN.
    • IT WAS PROBABLY THE MOST IMPOSING STRUCTURE, IN THE WHOLE AREA WITH ITS GRAND APARTMENTS AND SPACIOUS SALOONS FURNISHED WITH COSTLY CHANDELIERS, MIRRORS AND SILK DIWANS.
    • IT WAS USED FOR BANQUETS IN HONOR OF NAWAB. THE FINE FURNITURE IN THE HALL WAS COMPLEMENTED BY HIGH QUALITY OF WORKMANSHIP IN THE BUILDING.
    • A STUCCO FIRE PLACE AT THE FIRST FLOOR LEVEL STILL RETAINS A MARBLE-LIKE FINISH.
    • THE FOUNTAIN IN THE MAIN ENTRANCE HALL EXHIBITS A FINE EXAMPLE OF INLAID MARBLE WORK IN BLACK AND WHITE WHICH WAS RESTORED RECENTLY IT WAS CONVERTED INTO HOSPITAL DURING THE SIEGE IN 1857.

    THE MUSEUM WITH THE CANNONS

    • THE HOUSE WAS BUILT ON A SLOPE WITH A GARDEN ON BOTH SIDES, ONE HIGHER OTHER THAN THE OTHER ON THE RESIDENCY SIDE, THERE WAS ONE FLOOR AND ON THE CITY SIDE WERE TWO FLOORS.
    • OWING TO THE LOWER LEVEL OF THE GROUND ON THAT SIDE THERE WAS SUITE OF ROOMS FROM WHICH THE DOORS OPENED INTO THE GARDEN
    • AND STAIRCASES IN THE ROOMS ABOVE. IN ONE OF THESE ROOMS WAS SWIMMING-BATH; THE OTHERS WERE FOR GENERAL PURPOSES, THERE WAS ALSO A JEHKHANA, OR UNDERGROUND ROOM FOR HOT WEATHER WHICH PROVIDED MUCH NEEDED REFUGE FOR THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN QUARTERED HERE SIR HENRY LAWRENCE WAS SHIFTED TO THIS BUILDING AFTER BEING MORTALLY WOUNDED ON 2ND JULY, WHO SUCCUMBED TO HIS INJURIES ON 4TH JULY, 1857.
