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.

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!).

Didn't know what to expect, but this city just keeps amazing me. You must visit Lucknow and this should be top of your list. Be careful if you suffer from vertigo!
