Well you must have read the same slogan as the heading of this post, on tree guards ,hoardings or walls while travelling to different places in lucknow. How many of us , actually understood this slogan. To build that understanding we all need to reach to innerself, recall and understand why we feel good to spend time on green and clean places like Lohia park, Janeshwar mishra park or heritage places in lucknow , which are surrounded by green trees since decades.
Gone are the days , when we use to see loads of trees around us. With growing development, its evident that many buildings are now being built at the cost of trees and natural resources. Still, I would take this opportunity to recall what is it to visit places surrounded by trees and how it serves as the fodder to our peace and freshness seeking senses.
Lucknow Heritage Place:
Lucknow Residency: the first in the list is The Lucknow Residency, actually, which is a group of buildings that were built in the year 1775 by the then Nawab of Oudh, Nawab Saadat Ali Khan. It was originally constructed to serve as the residence of the British Resident General who was a representative in the court of the Nawab.
Later, it became a place of National importance when it witnessed the famous revolt of 1857, which shook the then-British regime. Now in ruins, the Lucknow Residency has been declared a protected monument by the Archaeological Survey of India. Today it is surrounded by trees and is a peaceful place to visit and relax.
Parijaat Tree- The Parijaat tree is a sacred baobab tree in the village of Kintoor, near Barabanki, a district about 30 km from Lucknow. The Parijat tree is considered to be a divine tree which blooms occasionally with flowers that are white on blooming and turn yellow on drying.This tree is of great importance for localites both religiously and environmentally.
Ramakrishna Math- Ramakrishna Math or Sevashrama in Lucknow is a branch of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission, Belur. Made of marble and located amidst a beautiful garden, the math contains idols of Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda. It incorporates several architectural styles particularly of Jains, Pallavas, Chanellas, Chalukyas and Mughals.

Gautam Buddha Park – Like all other attractions in the city which enrich people’s holidaying with fun and merrymaking, the Gautam Buddha Park in Lucknow also has its own brand of unique charm. Situated near the Rumi gate, the park is one of the significant developments as far as Buddhism in Lucknow is concerned. It is believed that Gautam Buddha spent a major part of his life in Uttar Pradesh.This park gives a beautiful view to eyes and can soothe you in burning heat.
