Constantia - La Martiniere Boys School

This magnificent structure known as the Constantia House is the building of La Martiniere College, Lucknow, a reputed boys’ school. The building and the grounds around it were part of the palace of Lord Will Claude Martin, a French General. He made a will directing that the palace be converted into an educational institution. Accordingly, the La Martiniere College was established in 1845 and Claude Martin is considered its founder. He died and is buried within the palace premises. The beautiful structure stands on the banks of the River Gomti, surrounded by sprawling lawns.
