Built in around16th century without modern engineering knowledge, A great tourist spot to visit. It is also known as Bhul Bhuliya . To balance the roof load lot of Galleries were made and if you do not know the correct sequence of turning left or right, you will be lost. Pl. engage a guide to enjoy the visit.

Bara Imambara is a must visit even if you have a single day to visit Lucknow. Highly recommend to opt for a guide. Rates are fixed, and clearly displayed. Check for closing time before visit!

Very beautiful monument. Lots of hidden story behind its construction. Near Bada imambara, roomi gate, chota imambara, clock tower, picture gallery and many more park are situated. So one should visit all these places too. It takes around 6 hrs to visit all these places together.

Actually a Bhool Bhulaiya...!! Must visit once, if you visited Lucknow - The City of Nawabs. Very Interesting Story behind the King of Imambara. Awesome Place to Visit & Spend time with Family & Friends. Njoy Coming in winters as well as Mid-Summers.

The Bara Imambara is a beautiful collection of buildings and well kept gardens that is a must-see in Lucknow. The labyrinth at the top is unusual and fun to explore (with a guide!).
