Lucknow Residency 5

There is a small museum illustrating the history of the 1857 revolt. It is surrounded by beautiful lawns. 
 A small battery of guns lines the museum. The outer walls themselves are extensively pockmarked by the shells

 A statue reminiscent of the gunners in front of the museum

 Maj Gen Henry Lawrence, who led the defence of the residency during the seige, is commemorated by this tall collonaded tower
