Residency Lucknow Part-1

This is first part I will try to cover all the data regarding the residency for your information and from my own experience.. it only includes the basic ideology and ideas. . . Thankyou for giving your time 😄… Be happy and have a great day.. Soon the other two parts will come and they will be more deep and arranged logically..

The basic plan for area and showing the river Gomti the north and the plan of residency
Fountain.. Beautifully made and it has a Hall around all sides and the movement is given in all the directions .. It might be a meeting place.. The stairs are being given on both the sides and they are made in symmetrical planning.
When we visit the residency we find that the roofs are almost missing because as the Britishers are firing from the inside but the indians opposite side the three forces are attacking from inside.. For this reason many Indian’s got killed.. So as a result the roofs are being targeted and they are fired with the baarood Gola. Thus making them Britishers to bent their knee..As this is the strategy used to gain victory… This was found in the inside and it is domical in form.. Built from the lakhory bricks.
Buttresses- the butteresses are being built to hold the large walls the thickness of walls is 750 mm aprox and they are still standing today. The columns are of steel and the sections are still standing.. The doors sizes are around 1500 mm thickness and they are 2500mm height.. The image is shown below.
Showing the door height and the small small cracks in the walls are the signs of the cannon balls and the bulllets which are being fired and are still present today.. . The door size is tooo large the roofs are missing. The scale is monumental

Do give your precious time and visit the place once in your life.. It makes us understand the hardwork during the Revolt of 1857..and also makes us proud about our fighters.

Thankyou for giving your valuable time.. Do keep visiting my site and make me more knowledgable about your ideas and the places that you visit.. It will help both of us to increase our vision and wisdom… Thankyou Namaskaar🙏, Shabbakhair.. Have a nice day😇
