Alumbagh, a garden or park surrounding a palace and a mosque, 4 miles from Lucknow, in the province of Oude, British India. It was the property of the Princes of Oude, and in 1857 was occupied by the mutineers, who were dislodged by Outram, Havelock, and Neill. The British garrison held the place against overwhelming odds until relieved by Colin Campbell, in 1858. The Alumbagh then became of material service to our forces in operating against Lucknow and the local chiefs.
