Q1. Which city is famous for Chikankari
take it at face value, chikankari refers to any type of needlework. Some of the
earliest examples of this method of decorating textiles can be found in what is
now Lucknow but was once the Nawabs' capital. Today, Lucknow is the center of
the chikankari industry, and the resulting variety is known as Lucknawi chikan.

in the ancient Chikankari embroidery technique. Even though it had its start in
India, chikankari soon became a worldwide craze.
Q2. Who introduced Chikankari?
Jaha, the Mughal Queen who was married to Emperor Jehangir, was the one who
first displayed the exquisite piece of handmade art. Chikankari
was first mentioned in the early works of the 3rd century BC by Megasthenes, a
well-known Greek traveler. In his writings, Megasthenes described the exquisite
beauty of intricate floral motifs and patterns on cloths that were created
using chikankari work. Chikankari has been practiced ever since.
