With the permanent setup of this retired warship at the River Front, Lucknow is all set to add another landmark to its list of tourist attractions in the city. After becoming a landmark in itself, this warship will remind the city folks of its valour after completing its honourable service.

According to officials, INS Gomati F 21 will be brought to the Capital City via sea route. Since there is no direct sea link from Mumbai to Lucknow, this warship will be brought in parts that will later be reassembled at a chosen location. Once established at the Gomti River Front, this warship will be open for the public to see and explore.
