Khursheed Manzil or the “House of the Sun” is the main building of La Martiniere Girls’ College. It houses the college office and residential quarters of the students. It is a large double storeyed mansion marked by six low towers. Planned by Saadat Ali Khan, it was completed by his son Ghazi-ud-din Haider. It is built in the form of a castle fortified by a twelve foot wide moat over which there was formerly a drawbridge. During the 1st War of Independence, 1857, Khursheed Manzil was the location of some very stubborn fighting. At that time it served as the Mess House of the officers of the 32nd Regiment.

The college is situated in the heart of the city and stands upon high ground. Apart from the main building, Khursheed Manzil, additions and improvements have been made. There are now fourteen main college buildings connected by covered corridors, housing large and airy dormitories, dining halls, library, laboratories and of course the classrooms. The college auditorium is a separate building, located near the main entrance. The college also has a small hospital in the charge of a qualified nurse and an Honorary Doctor. The college grounds apart from the lawn, gardens and orchards; also house badminton, basketball and tennis courts, a large playing field and a swimming pool.


There are 69, spacious, well lit and ventilated classrooms in the College. To promote the spirit of competition, to facilitate the teaching learning process and to encourage well decorated classrooms we have instituted an award for the best class room of the month. A photograph of the chosen classroom will  also be displayed on the website at the end of the month.


This auditorium was built by Miss Mary Ann Gresseux. She was the Lady Principal and Secretary of La Martiniere Girls’ College. Tha auditorium was inaugurated by His Excellency B.Gopala Reddi, Governor of Uttar Pradesh on Saturday, 6th September, 1969 to commemorate the centenary of the school. The Auditorium is used for Assemblies, Co-curricular Activities, the Annual concert, as well as Indoor Badminton. In the year 2003 a balcony was added to the auditorium.  At the entrance of the lobby of the auditorium is a bust of our Founder Major General Claude Martin.

1962 saw the first swimming pool in Lucknow and it was at La Martiniere Girls' High School. District and State meets were held in the LMGC pool until the pool at the stadium was built. The first Inter Martiniere Calcutta Vs Lucknow swimming competition was held in 1962 itself and swimming replaced badminton at the meet. The pool was tiled in 1992 and the filter plant added in the same year. Class swimming for classes 3, 4 & 5 is held every day during the swimming season (April-October). A large number of students avail this opportunity to learn how to swim. The residential scholars use the pool every evening. The swimmers under the able guidance of Miss R.Chaurasia practice hard and have brought many laurels both at state and national levels.They have also won the State rowing Championship cup.
