Lucknow is popular amongst tourists from all over the world because of its rich history, culture, as well as food. This beautiful city is well-known for its monuments and historical significance. To get a close glimpse of Lucknow, start with a visit to the dhobi ghat where you can see washer men beating clothes in a rhythm. They do this work on the rocks of the banks of river Gomti. This is a part of the local sightseeing in Lucknow. The best part is that you find the washermen singing the local folk songs. You can enjoy this scene with a ‘kulhad’ (earthern glass) of chilled lassi or thandai in your hand.
