Raj Bhawan Lawns in Lucknow now open for morning walkers & yoga enthusiasts
Wake up Lucknowites! The time to take in the fresh morning air is nigh. If you've been looking for a place to carry out your early morning fitness routines, you will be delighted to know that Raj Bhavan lawns are now open for fitness enthusiasts and morning walkers for 2 hours everyday.
The Uttar Pradesh Governor, Anandiben Patel on Tuesday, announced that the lawns of her majestic gubernatorial residence would be open to all.
Early morning walks to get better
Now, you can bask in the warm summer sun early in the morning from 5 am to 7 am at the Raj Bhavan lawns. The gates have been opened specifically for all morning walkers and yoga lovers, but other fitness enthusiasts are welcome too.
"Governors have invited all to come, walk, do yoga in the fresh air and benefit,” the governor said on the occasion of International Yoga Day on Tuesday. Some former Raj Bhavan officials said that the governor wanted to open the Raj Bhavan lawns as soon as she took over in 2019.
Elaborating on the same, she said "We have such a big and nice Raj Bhavan, such good lawns, so many trees and plants. But I feel bad that neither people from outside the Raj Bhavan nor our staff and their families make use of it. I appeal to all of you to come here each day between 5 am and 7 am for Yoga and morning walk."
Raj Bhavan of Lucknow is an ancient and historical building, which is over 200 years old. It was initially called Kothi Hayat Baksh and Major General Claude Martin created the layout of this building.
With its everlasting splendor, beautifully designed curly railings, lush greenery, tall trees, beautiful gardens, fountains and lighting, Raj Bhavan Lucknow has not lost its charm yet. And this time, you can experience it too, every morning!
