A good place to visit

Reached in winter season and got stuck in raebareli for 5 hour. Then I decided to go outside and visit this small city. First I searched for market area and got not a good item to purchase. Then I found out about indira garden, a place to visit for timepass. I bought a ticket and went to visit garden which is nearly 5km from the city. Garden is so beautiful and having boating arena.

Rae Bareli Overview

Rae-Bareli is a city as well as a municipal district in the state of Uttar Pradesh. It is also the administrative headquarters of Rae-Bareli District. The city is situated on the banks of the Sai River and lies at a distance of 82 kilometres from the state capital, Lucknow.

The Rae-Bareli District was created by the British in 1858, however, according to history the town was found by the Bhars, due to which, the town got its name ‘Bareli’. The first part of its name is said to be derived from a nearby village called ‘Rahi.’

The city is also popular for information technology and it has the first public sector undertaking in the form of ITI Ltd. It is also one of the six manufacturing plants of the telecom giant. Rae-Bareli recently retained its top position in India’s telecommunication business for the fourth year, consecutively.

Rae-Bareli and its people have also been a significant part of the ‘Quit India Movement’ and after independence, the city celebrated several events to rejoice the occasion. The city was proposed to be a part of Lucknow and Rae-Bareli District in the year 1858.

Hindi and Awadhi are the two widely spoken languages of the place. The maximum population of the place comprises Hindus followed by groups of Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and Jains.

The city offers some significant tourist attractions like the Indira Gandhi Memorial Botanical Garden, the Behta Bridge and the Samaspur Bird Sanctuary. The Indira Gandhi Botanical Garden is situated on the Lucknow-Varanasi Highway and comprises plantations of different species of flowers, fruits and vegetables for scientific research as well as general public interest.

Behta Bridge is situated on the outskirts of Rae-Bareli, and at this bridge, Sharda canal crosses the Sai River. The Samaspur Bird Sanctuary is situated in Rohaniya Development Block and is home to more than 250 varieties of birds. The city is also home to some ancient tombs built by Nawab Jahan Khan and Shah Jahan.

Reaching Rae-Bareli is also quite easy due to the availability of frequent bus services and trains to the city from other states of Uttar Pradesh. Trains and buses to Rae-Bareli are available from cities like Lucknow, Allahabad, Dehradun, Haridwar, Bareli, Kanpur, Meerut and Jhansi.

The city has a subtropical climate giving the place very hot summers and very cold winters. It experiences an average rainfall of 1200 mm. The months of September, October, and November remain quite pleasant and are a good time to visit the city.
