History of Sikandar Bagh

Built by Nawab Saadat Ali Khan, this early 19th-century green space was a former stronghold during the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857 and 1858. It was on the grounds of this garden that the 'ugly blind hole' was created on one of the brick walls.

This collision was caused by the six open fires and 18 other guns. Housing over 2000 soldiers, the Sikander Bagh was a site of mass murder at the hands of the British Commander-in-Chief, Sir Colin Campbell.
