The Rumi Darwaza stands in between the Bara Imambara and the Chota Imambara. It is an impressive structure and derives its architecture from Turkish influence. The motifs on the arch have Chikankari design, and pan leaves & fruits, that were the choice of the Nawabs in those days.

This is a historical place of Lucknow. Usually you will able to see lot of traffic here. If you want to see this place without traffic or less traffic so try to visit in the morning before 7am. In the evening around this place you will see lot of local food vendors, their food is amazing. You can try local food available here.

Roomi darwaza is situated at about 5-7 minutes walking distance from Bara Imambara towards chota Imambara. If we have to visit Ghana ghar, picture gallery and chota Imambara from bara Imambara we have to pass through roomi darwaza.

This is a beautiful gate for clicking pictures. Many vehicles ass through this gate.

A beautiful darwaza in Lucknow.

A symbol of Lucknow! A gateway made in a beautiful Awadhi style is a must visit place when you are in Lucknow. Situated in between Bada Imambara and Chhota Imambara, it takes you to 19 th century charm. If you have affinity for old culture you will live this place.

If you are standing in front Bara Imambara facing towards it, Rumi Darwaza will be on your right side. This massive structure used to be the entrance of old Lucknow city. It is located in between Bara Imambara and Chota Imambara, so if you moving towards Choto Imambara from Bara Imambara you need to pass through Rumi Darwaza.

I was looking fwd to seeing this gate in Lucknow but was little disappointed due to renovations and also the color which looks different on Google and trip advisor. My view was a light terra cotta color and others shows different shades od earth tones. I now believe those were pollution residues and its probably clean now lol. Its still an amazing piece of architecture.

Rumi Darwaza,Built by Nawab Asaf us daula in 1784, is a historical monument near Bada ImamBada, Lucknow. Takes you back in time showing the brilliance of awadhi architecture. It has a big lantern on top of it which lights this monument at night. Definitely a place to visit in Lucknow.

Rumi Gate is made in the design of a Naulakha haar, inverted. Also designed like the Lucknow famous Chikankari embroidery work. Very close to Bara Imambara, it has a beautiful setting to see the city passing by the gate. From one end, you can see the four stories of the architect whereas from the other end, it is the only one piece. A true marvel.
