Kaisar Bagh

Built by Nawab Wajid Ali Shah during 1845-50, Kaisar Bagh is a park with rows of buildings constituting the haven of the last Lucknow Nawab. In the centre is a Baradari, a pavilion set in a pool. Lal Baradari used to be as the coronation and throne hall of the Nawabs after Sadat Ali Khan's time. Set inside a well maintained public garden are the jewel-like tombs of Nawab Sadat Ali and his Begum Murshidgadi. The Archaeological Museum houses some exquisite exhibits.

Close by is the Chattar Manzil built by Nawab Ghazi-ud-Din Haider. A gilt umbrella over its dome gives the name (Chattar - umbrella) to this fine palace incorporating many features of European architecture. Once the royal abode, it now houses the Central Drug Research Institute of India. Just opposite to it used to be Chota Chattar Manzil, which has been rebuilt as the Office of the Commissioner of Lucknow Division.
