Kanpur
Kanpur MapNestled on the banks of the eternal Ganga, Kanpur is believed to be founded by king Hindu Singh of the erstwhile state of Sachendi.
Up to the 1st half of the 18th century Kanpur continued to survive as an insignificant village. Kanpur passed in to British hands under the treaty of  1801 with Nawab Saadat Ali Khan of Awadh & Kanpur became of the most important military stations of British India.

The Kanpur Memorial Church was built in 1875, in honour of the British who lost their lives in the war of 1857. The inside contains monuments to the mutiny. In the separate enclosure to the east of the church is the Memorial Garden. Its centre is occupied by the stunning carved figure of an angel by Baron Carlo Marochetti, with crossed arms, a symbol of peace. The memorials were relocated here after independence in 1948. The Military Cemetery on the fringe of the cantonment contains a lot of fascinating graves from the late 19th century.
