Lakshman Tila

 

Lakshman Tila is situated on the north of Imambara complex and on the right banks of the river Gomti. It is said to be the original site of Lucknow. The story says that when Lord Rama  returned to Ayodhya after his 14 years of exile, he gifted the palace to his younger brother Lakshman. Lakshman is believed to have stayed here, and the region was later named as Lakshmanpur. That Tila, today, is known as Lakshman Tila. The place is believed  to have been one of the earliest sites of human settlements in Lucknow. Main attraction of the place is the Alamgiri Mosque built by Sultan Ali, the Governor of the province of Avadh, during the reign of Aurangzeb. The mosque is a triple domed structure with slender minarets at corners. The marvelous symmetry of form and abstemiousness of decoration makes the mosque very attractive.
