Rumi Darwaza is synonymous with Lucknow, capital of a northern Indian state - Uttar Pradesh. It symbolises empathy and is legacy of Nawabs of Awadh.

Very attractively constructed and maintained. Draws the attention of the traveler from a distance. Located close to Imambara, and easily approachable. Better to see it on the way rather than making it a separate destination.

The Rumi Darwaza is an example of the fine architectural style of Awadh. It was constructed in the year 1784 by Nawab Asaf-ud-daula. This gate is also known by the name of Turkish Gateway since it is supposed to be identical in design to a similar gateway in ancient Constantinople.
