Situated in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, the Rumi Gate is said to represent the heart and soul of the Awadh architecture when it was at its pinnacle. Rumi Gate was constructed as a famine relief measure in 1784. During the Nawabi era, a huge lantern placed atop the Rumi Darwaza would light up the pathway, while jets of water gushed from the numerous fountains created on the rim of the gateway. This impressive gateway is also sometimes referred as Turkish Gateway in the British historical sources.
