Pay tribute to one of India's strident social reformers at Dr. Ambedkar Park. A solemn row of 62 elephants leads to the park's main focus, a memorial to Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, leader of a Buddhist movement and tireless campaigner against social discrimination, especially towards the Untouchable class. Opposite to the memorial, a small museum displays statues of other important figures. Visit the 24 m (80 ft) pyramidal monument for sweeping views over the expansive red sandstone memorial. Bring plenty of water and sunblock when exploring the area, and consider coming back at night to see the sculptures vibrantly illuminated. A visit to Dr. Ambedkar Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Lucknow road trip planning site to plot your vacation.

This park will take your breath away! It is indescribable in its beauty and magnificence. We spent hours there just in awe of such a unique place. There is nowhere in the world to compare it to that we know of. Do not miss this under any circumstances Well this place is nicely located, and is massive in area covered. I had gone on week day here and found , number of elephants made of stones were much more then tourists.
Visited this place at night, and I recommend everyone else to do the same. The lighting, the architecture and the entire atmosphere is amazing. I absolutely loved it. I think I roamed around the place for couple of hours just enjoying the view and peacefulness of the place. It was a great place to come and unwind/relax after a long day of busy Lucknow.
