: Seaton Delavel, An English Country House
The Dilkusha Kothi set amidst lush green lawn was constructed in the Gothic style. Nawab Saadat Ali Khan built the Kothi and its neighboring splendid garden; the Kothi is almost an exact replica of an English Country house called Seaton Delavel, built in 1721.
During the 1857 war of Independence, the Kothi attracted the wrath of revolutionaries. It is currently being restored by the Archaeological Survey of India, and is a well-liked picnic spot.
