Chakkar Kothi, Lucknow This place was the key to the rebel position on the left bank of the Gomti. The Sepoys offered courageous resistance here to check the advance of the British troops on the city. It was taken by assault on 9 March 1858 by a column of Sir Colin’s force. 

Musa Bagh 

Musa Bagh, situated on the right bank of the river about four miles to the north¬ west, was the last stronghold of the rebels in Lucknow. After the fall of the city this position was defended by nearly 9,000 men led by Begam Hazrat Mahal and the Maulvi of Faizabad. Sir James Outram captured it on 19 March 1858; but the rebels were able to make good their escape.
