Attractions of Rumi Darwaza

A person named 'Kifayatullah' was created by the architect of the famous Imambara and Rumi Darwaza built by Asaf-ud-Daula. This was the same artisan, who handled the moon-shaped half-mast of the Rumi Darwaza and the brick kiln of Imambara in Ladavatar. Lakhda brick and almond lime have been used in all these buildings. The Rumi Darwaza was built on the copy of an ancient ridge door of Constantinople and that is why it used to call people like Kustunatunya in the 19th century. In his book 'Private Life of the Eastern King', Knighton writes that the entrance to the court of Sultan of Turkey was also of this model and hence, so far, the European historian calls it 'Turkish Gate'. Buildings constructed in Lucknow are not affiliated with any one genre. From the time of Nawab Asaf-ud-Daula, the effects of Gothic art began to appear in buildings. The Rumi Darwaza , which is connected effortlessly to Rome, may be considered as a symbol of foreign origin like the Roman script, its original influence nourishes Indian art.

Hindu-Muslim art

Rumi Darwaza height is 60 feet. An eight-facade canopy is built on top of it, as far as the road to go is concerned. The Rumi Darwaza on the west side is like Tripoliya, whereas it seems to be the Panchmahal from the East. On the two sides of the door there is a three-storeyed ventilated fortress, with eight sides turquoises on which there is no dome. The Rumi Darwaza decoration is unique, in which the combination of Hindu-Muslim art is found. This gate is a conical, whose arches are tilted like a command. The outer arbor has been decorated with Nagaphans, which can be understood as Kamal Dal. Both of these marks are cultural symbols of Awadh Pradesh. Sandal lotus flowers are found in the queue from the middle of the hawthorns. Small umbrellas have been built on Kamalassa on either side of the door. The inside arch is the Shahjahani arches of Mughal tradition. In the decoration of which are made of citadels of craft, on the vertex of its crest, there is a blossomed lotus.

A tradition of art

The Rumi door, built in the 18th century, later became a tradition of building art. Behind this door, there used to be a lot of splendor, in which there were masons of British martyrs who were killed on the front of the fort of Machhi in the jungle freedom of 1857. These British soldiers are the heads of the Sergeant Laurence class and Garner Martin, whose marks are still remaining.
