Majestic and grande - this imambara should not be missed - bearing similar influences of chota imambara, this white building sits besides gomti river giving photographers an excellent clicking oppurtunity.

This Imambara is off the tourist track and is worth a visit to soak in the peaceful surroundings with exquisite chandeliers all over the place.

This one of the less visited monuments in Lucknow, despite its rich history and architectural splendor. This is a quaint place and the perfect place to get away from the maddening crowds at the other two Imambaras more popular with the tourists.

The location is quiet and dignified but the highlight is the crazy number of chandeliers hanging in the main Imambara space... rather like a surreal lighting showroom for psychedelic chandeliers.

Not as impressive as Bara Imambara, but still worth a visit. 30 minutes is more than enough to get a feel for the place.
