The Rumi Darwaza is earlier known as the Turkish Gate, which was an impressive gateway that was built under the sponsorship of Nawab Asaf-Ud- Daula in 1784. Rumi Darwaza was one of the best examples of Awadi Architecture of that period. Respectively it stands 60 feet tall and was shaped after the Sublime Porte ( Bab-i-Hümayuo) in Istanbul. It was close to the Asafi Imambara in Lucknow and later on, it has become the logo of the city of Lucknow.
