The Rumi Darwaza of Lucknow is one of the most impressive structures in all of India. It was built in the year 1784 by Nawab Asaf-ud-daula, under the ‘Food for Work’ program he initiated to help the city’s population get through a brutal famine. Completed in that same year, the gateway stands 60 feet tall and was modeled after elaborately decorative gateway styles found in Constantinople (which is Istanbul today), adorned with beautifully carved flowers and designs. Like the Bara Imambara’s arch (which stands to the West of Rumi Darwaza), this structure has no other supplementary fittings of wood or iron to support the structure from outside, but it remains steady to this day. On top of the building, there’s a tower space that once held a massive lantern to light the tower up at night. This is an especially grand example of Awadhi architecture and well worth a visit.
