Beautiful - takes about one hour to cover everything. Many monuments in a single complex. Best to take a combined ticket. Take a guide for the labyrinth (bhool bhulaiya).

Imambara is topped by a golden dome, which when illuminated during festivities, offers a fantastic view. This complex is also known by the name of Husainabad Imambara.

There’s a combined ticket for Bara Imambara, Picture Gallery, Chhota imambara for Rs 50. As such if a person wants to visit the Imambara as a religious place then there is no fee.
