History of Chattar Manzil
Historians believe that this building was constructed in memory of Chattar Kunwar around 1810. After the death of Saadat Ali Khan, his son Ghaziuddin Haider completed the construction work of this building. The Farhat Bakhsh Palace was originally built by French General Claude Martin. For any wood that was used in the construction of it, the tree on the bank of the river Gomti was cut. It is said that the complete construction of the Chattar Manzil was completed in 1781 and by 1800, Martin remained in it till the last breath. People say that they were handed over to Constantia, which is known today as Lamartiniere Boys College.

After this the residential area of the Nawabs became Kaiser Bagh which was also called the Kaiser-e-Sultan, the palace of the king.

His son Ghaziuddin Haider was crowned as the first king of Awadh. On the edge of the Farhat Bakhsh, the statues and flowers of the flowers used to make four beauties in their beauty, known as Gulistan-e-Iram (Gardens of Paradise). Kothi was constructed in front of this flower garden, which was known as Darshan Bilas.
