One of the antique colonial landmarks of Lucknow, the 1845-building of the La Martinère School houses the tomb of Claude Martin, the French Major-General of the time. Besides, this European styled structure also sites a library, a chapel and a well-preserved and beautiful lobby room.

Although it still maintains the curriculum here with two separate boys and girls schools, the 1857 batch of this institute is said to have played an important part in the revolt. Hosting some architectural highlights such as carved arches and profoundly decorated balconies, this heritage building continues to be one of the top educational institutes in town.
