The Residency  - Lucknow, Lucknow, Uttar PradeshAbout four kilometer from the main town is the residency which was started in 1780 by Asaf-ud-Daulla but was completed in 1800 during the rein of Saddat Ali.

Popularly known as Beli Gaurd, this building was occupied by the rebels during the first war of independence in 1857 but the building was soon recaptured by the British. But the rebels did not leave siege easily. The heavy cross firing which ensued between the rebels and British had badly damaged the structure.

What ever is left of the structure has been attracting tourist and visitors in great number. The lush green grass and gardens around the Residency have developed as a picnic spot. In the night the structure is floodlit which adds to the beauty of this building.
