Mythology Dates Lucknow Back To The Satyug Period Of Ramayana When Laxman The Younger Brother Of Ram Formed A Settlemet Of Lakshamanavati Of Laxshmanpur. Archaeological Excavations Indicate Presence Of Prehistoric And Historic (Ad 40-900) Settlements. The Historic City Of Lucknow Was Once The Set Of Indo-Muslim Civilisation-The Legacy Of The Nawabs Of Awadh Lucknow Is Also Important For Its Role In The 1857 War Of Independence, An Event That Largely Transformed The Morphology Of The City And Was The Cause Of Destruction Of Much Of Its Historic Fabric. This Book Traces The Urban History Of City With Reference To Its Art, Architecture And Sophisticated Composite Culture, Which Is Unique And Is Remembered With Nostalgia.
