Faizabad known for its beautiful buildings is located at 7 km from Ayodhya. Faizabad was developed as a township nearly 220 years ago, during the reign of Safdar Jung, the second Nawab of Avadh, who laid its foundation by making it his army headquarters. Siraj-ud-daula, his successor settled at Faizabad after 1764 and built a fort known as Chhota Calcutta, now in ruins. In 1765, he built the Chowk and Tripaulia and subsequently laid out the Anguribagh, Motibagh, Asafbagh and Bulandbagh. During the reign of Siraj-ud-daula, Faizabad attained prosperity which it never saw again. The glory of Faizabad eclipsed with the shifting of capital from Faizabad to Lucknow by Nawab Asaf-ud-daula. The principal achievement of the period was the mausoleum of Siraj-ud-daula, known as Gulab Bari. It is a striking building of fine properties and stands in a garden surrounded by a wall, approachable through two large gateways. Siraj-ud-daula’s wife was well known as Bahu Begum, who married the Nawab in 1743 and continued to reside in Faizabad. The tomb of Bahu Begum is located at Jawaharbagh. It is considered to be one of the finest buildings of its kind in Avadh, which was built at the cost of three lakh rupees by her chief advisor Darab Ali Khan. A fine view of the city can be had from top of the tomb. Most of the Muslim buildings at Faizabad are attributed to the Bahu Begum. The more notable buildings are Gulab Bari, Moti Mahal, Khurshid Mahal, Dilkusha and Tomb of Bahu Begum.
