Amazing place loved it....you will find it very quite and peaceful...being a religious monument it well kept and you will see the difference from other locations in Lucknow as its not at all commercialized like Imambara...excellent example of hindu muslim unity...

It’s at a walking distance from the hotel. It is a lovely heritage monument & dedicated to Hazrat Ali’s S.A.W. It has its own history & a religious importance.
