The building itself is huge and great example of architectural wonder of our history. The place is big. One must plan a good time to spend.

The place should be on every travelers list to visit with the labyrinth to get lost in. Take a guide ( for Rs 50 or 100) donot pay more. Also, the maze is really worth going through. With or without the guide.

Lovely place with impressive architecture. I loved the garden too. It's inevitable to visit Bara Imambara if you come to Lucknow.

Bara or Asafi Imambara made by Asaf Ud Daula is the central attraction in Lucknow.Baoli,Bhulbhulaiya and Imambara complex is the excellent example of architecture made by Nawabs in Awadh.Guides are informative and other arrangements for tourists are acceptable.A must see place in Lucknow.Camera allowed against Rs.25 ticket and a combo ticket for Indians is Rs.50.Guides charges extra.

This place is divided into the main building then the hide and seek passages and the separate building which houses 'bowli' a well. It's worth the climb up the stairs in the main building as the view from the terrace is lovely. The guide gives you some incoherent stories, take it with a pinch of salt. The lawns were well...
