Photograph of the Sikandar Bagh, Lucknow from the Vibart Collection: 'Dannenberg Album' of Indian Mutiny sites taken by an unknown photographer in the 1870s. Built by Nawab Wajid Ali Shah (r.1874-1856), Sikandar Bagh gateway led to a two-storeyed pavilion and pleasure garden for the use of the Nawab's women. Though the garden and pavilion have not survived, the gateway still exists. This was the scene of intense fighting during the Uprising of 1857 and the spot where the British breached the walls is marked. There is also a memorial wall and an obelisk to the victims of the Uprising.
