Jaunpur is a small town in Eastern Uttar Pradesh. It is about 50 km from Varanasi and is famous for Sharqi architecture.
When I was a child, I met the queen of Jaunpur in her Lucknow home. She was a very pleasant lady and was called Rani Sahiba by one and all. Her home was full of royal insignia, silverware, carpets and many stuffed animals, from the times of Rajas and shikar tales.
Her son, Sri Avanindra Dutt Dubey is now the Raja Sahib of Jaunpur. Visiting their home in Jaunpur, Raja Sahib ki Haweli is indeed a special treat.

Shyam Khatu Mandir on the banks of River Gomti, opposite Colvin Taluqdars’ College in Lucknow is fast growing in popularity, as it provides a calm setting where people come and relax as they worship and socialise.
