All foreigners visiting India must have a visa for entry. Please contact the Indian Embassy nearest you for information on obtaining proper documentation for travel to India. Upon registration, you will also receive an invitation for visa purposes.

View the layout of the venue or photos of the city and surrounding area.

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:
