Though these buildings were not built on as grand a stage as some of the other Mughal buildings of India, their elegance nevertheless awes. Of interest too are the buildings that played a prominent role during the Mutiny of 1857, especially the Residency. The visit includes the State Secretariat and the Residency - Built in 1800 for the British Resident, this group of buildings became the stage for the most dramatic events of the 1857 Mutiny or Uprising and the Siege of Lucknow. The Residency has been maintained exactly as it was at the time of the final relief, the shattered walls scarred by cannon shots. Even since Independence little has changed apart from the lowering of the Union Jack that flew night and day from one of the towers... and the unveiling of an Indian Martyrs Memorial directly opposite the Residency.
