Lucknow, which is situated on the banks of the river Gomti, is claimed to be among the most ancient of Hindu cities. With a population of 1.7 million, it is also the Capital of Uttar Pradesh, India's largest state.
Lucknow can be reached from Delhi by train or plane, though reservations must be made far in advance to ensure a proper sleeping berth for your overnight journey by train or via a 5-hour express train during the day. In addition, three airlines fly regularly between major cities and Lucknow.
Hindi is the local language, although English is spoken widely. November is the best time to visit Lucknow, as the weather is mild. For more information on Lucknow, visit the following Web sites:
