Yet another interesting construction by the erstwhile Nawab of Oudh, Saadat Ali Khan Lucknow Residency is a cluster of builds that were constructed in 1800 AD. It was built as the residence of the British Resident General, who was the company representative to the Nawab’s court. Residency buildings are placed on the beautiful banks of Gomati River and are encircled by lovely flowerbeds and vibrant lawns. Residency Building had a remarkable place in the freedom struggle of India, since it was here that the mutineers siege thousands of Englishmen and their family members. Month long cease fire claimed the lives of so many people. The bricks of the building echo the sad stories of the lost lives.

Remaining builds of the residency have been changed in to a museum and some government offices also functions from there. Museum showcases wide collection of paintings of 16th century and rare specimens of gold coins. The residency complex also houses the graves of the british soldiers who had lost their life in the siege. Other important testimonials within the complex are the tombs of Sadat Ali Khan and his family members, Kaisarbagh Palace, the Nur Baksh Kothi, Tarawali Kothi and an observatory.
