Bhimrao Ambedkar Samajik Parivartan Sthal is another name of Ambedkar Memorial in Lucknow. What is cost of Ambedkar Memorial in Lucknow? Bauddha Vihar Shanti Upvan, Kanshiram Memorial, Ambedkar Gomti Park, Samta Mulak Chowk, Ambedkar gomti Buddha Vihar.



In our childhood we used to hear that Taj Mahal is built with white marbles brought from Rajasthan or Red fort is built with Red sandstone from Rajsthan. Ambedkar Park in Lucknow bring those memories to life because it is also built with red sandstone from Rajastan. So it is no wonder that cost of Ambedkar memorial is a whooping 7 billion Rupees or 700 carore rupees. Earlier it used to be known as Ambedkar park and still is known by the same name by many people. However its official name is changed from Ambedkar park to Bhimrao Ambedkar memorial in May 2002.

Tourists places in Lucknow can certainly be divided into two categories: one built 200-300 years back during the time of nawabs and one in the modern time of now, and certainly to top the list in modern tourists places in Lucknow will be Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Samajik Parivartan Sthal which is more commonly known as Ambedkar park or Ambedkar memorial. It is spread across more than 107 acres in Gomti Nagar of Lucknow. There is no prize in guessing that it is built in the memory of Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar (as it is evident from its name). You can see Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar Smarak, Samajik Parivartan Sangrahalaya, Samajik Parivartan Gallery, Pratibimb Sthal, Drishya Sthal, Gautam Buddha Sthal, Samajik Parivartan Stambh, Monumental elephant gallery, bronze fountains, Ashokan Columns & urns, entrance plazas etc. here. Its lanes are full with greenery and have about 20 feet wide canal which surrounds this Ambedkar memorial. And if you have not seen the Ambedkar park at night then you have missed the real beauty of this Udyan, because during night, Ambedkar Udyan is illuminated with beautiful lighting as it seems as if the whole park has come alive. So if you are in Lucknow, it is a must see tourists spot in Lucknow. And if you have already seen it, you can share your experience about it here with us. It will help our readers or many people who are planning to visit Lucknow get a first hand knowledge about Ambedkar Park.
