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.

Fewer tourists being aware of the place, it is an island of serenity just next to the typical trappings... More

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.
