It can be said, that in Uttar Pradesh, tourists go to Agra and travellers to Lucknow. This land of myriad cultures and histories is where gracious living and colonial and Indian royal grandeur collide in one impressive kaleidoscopic burst. Like its kebabs, nothing is underdone in Lucknow. And in this glorious confluence of past and present, Taj Mahal Lucknow, offers a timeless Taj experience.
Stately. Elegant. Opulent. Taj Mahal Lucknow inspires a romance with a coquette called Lucknow.
If Delhi is the city of Djinns, then Lucknow is the city of soul. The nawabs still haunt it, as do the British, with their fine taste for delicate craftsmanship, love for beauty, music, the arts and cuisine.
In fact, if they were around they would give Taj Mahal Lucknow, a round of applause. Because this is where regal décor, food that is lovingly coaxed on plates, a revival of fine art and curated one-of-a-kind experiences come together.
A museum of monuments, this city, a rather overlooked destination by the ordinary itinerary, deserves a mention. Indeed, there’s nothing ordinary about this place. Every passing culture has left an indelible mark on the land, leaving behind an extraordinary blend of influences that’s almost fable-like. And all of this tradition is captured, waiting to be experienced, at the Taj Mahal Lucknow.

Go sightseeing, a must for history buffs. The siege of Lucknow’s Residency building was one of the sparks for the great Indian War of Independence in 1857. Lucknow's grandest structure, the Bada Imambara, is also an intriguing experience with its mysterious passageways, secret tunnels and labrynth maze.
Souvenirs can be exquisitely crafted chikan kurtas for both men, women and children or attars from the local bazaar.
And your most unforgettable one is your time here, at our hotel, which starts to delight and grow on you, making you amenable to a second visit. At the Taj Mahal Lucknow, time is always on your side. What more could you want, in a city so enduring?
