When I was young I use to dream of going to space. I just wanted to know like all kids of my age..how it feels to be weightless, what wonders could that create. But everyone could not have that chance. Sad naa!!…but wait what if I say such a place exists on our earth and that too in india! Have a look

A beautiful creation of humans, the Gravity Defying Palace at Lucknow U.P is known for its unmatched creativity. Constructed in 18th-century by the monarch Nawab Asaf-ud-Daula, its a blend of European and Arabic architecture. The  central arched hall is about 50 meters long and stands three stories high without any pillars or beams…isn’t it amazing? 

Furthermore it has a unique incredible maze called Bhulbhulaiya which  is located on the upper floor of the monument. One can easily get there through a staircase and enjoy the complete view of the city from the top, which is absolutely amazing. You may find treasures hidden, what else could be better than that!!
