The British offered her a hefty pension to return to Awadh and work under them, but she turned it down, and continued to resist the British rule till she breathed her last in 1879. She was buried on the grounds of Jama Masjid in Kathmandu. In an attempt to recognise her pivotal role in India’s first freedom struggle, she was duly honored at the Old Victoria Park in Hazratganj, Lucknow on 15th August, 1962, and was commemorated with a marble memorial, bearing the coat of arms of the Awadh family.
