Alambagh

Alambagh or Alumbagh is a large walled enclosure situated at about 4 miles from Lucknow, near Kanpur road in India. It contains a palace, a mosque and other buildings, as well as a beautiful garden. Alambagh was converted into a fort by rebels in 1857. After the British defeated the rebels and took charge of the fort, it served as the military command center for Lucknow and the nearby towns.

Now it is a part of Lucknow city and is one of the important commercial centres.

Alambagh is towards the north-west end of Lucknow and serves as a common market place for surrounding villages. Farmers from nearby villages visit Alambagh every morning to whole sell vegetables and crops to distributors and local retailers, who in turn distribute the vegetables and crops to retailers throughout Lucknow city.
