We had to pay the Guides even though I was not in favour and was almost in a mood to return back from the place.... More

The labyrinth visit to the roof was very good. I was totally confused by the entry and guide pricing rules. They seemed designed to annoy and confuse. The English notices don't agree with reality.

If you are a traveler who loves to visit historical places, then this is a must go for you. It was the palace of the Nawab of Oudh, massive structure and Muhgul architecture.

If you are wondering whether Bara Imambara is worth a visit, think no more. Not only it is worth a visit , infact a trip to Lucknow can be specially planned for seeing this monument only.

Bara Imambara, what can i say about it? Just amazing place. Amazed with history of Indian empire and culture. Bhoolbhoolaiya and Minars are awesome. Great place. Its a real Indian heritage. A sound cabin is also here. If you fire matchstick in one corner you can listen it to opposite corner also. Just amazing and awesome visit.

This is a good place to hangout with families and friends. You can spent entire day out there. A place for photographers to take shots. If you are a history lover and love architecture this is the place for you to go.

This place is really great. Best is Bhul bhulaiyya. It took us almost more than an hour to see this place. Without the guide you won't understand anything.

Brilliant architecture. Nice place. Wondering how these place were build and what was the technology of those period. Seeing is believing. Must visit, but do take the help of a guide to understand its importance
