Description

View of the Kaiser Bagh in Lucknow. The Kaiserbagh is a sprawling complex consisting of large, medium and small structures in the form of large rows of living quarters, royal mansions, ladies' quarters (harems), cupolas (small structures built on top of a roof) and in the center stands the Baradari, a picturesque white stone building which was earlier covered with silver. The construction of the Kaiserbagh Palaces was started in 1848 by Nawab Wajid Ali Shah and completed in 1850.
