The city of Lucknow played an important role in First War of Independence and throughout our freedom struggle until 1947. Erected to mark the first centenary celebrations of the Sepoy Mutiny in 1857, Shaheed Smarak, Lucknow is one of the first things that comes to the mind of many people, while discussing Lucknow. Situated on the bank of River Gomti in Lucknow, it is a place to recall the memory of those brave unknown warriors who laid down their precious lives during the freedom struggle. It is a place where history plays as an alluring background at all times making the picturesque Shaheed Smarak reminiscent of Lucknow's role in the stirring events of 1857. The sprawling marble structure with vibrant gardens on either sides, make this place attractive and worth visiting.
