    Great place to visualize old world charm of Lucknow. The history of the place is fascinating & so is the maze of Bhul- Bhulaiya

    Gives goosebumps to imagine what the British soldiers & their families must have felt during their 5 month siege in 1857. Great place for children to experience the horrors of conflicts (even with much less sophisticated weapons of old world)

    A historic school started by a French military officer two centuries ago. The grounds are lush and ambience is lively, and so too are the education standards.

    After checking out from Hotel Hilton we planned to visit Dr Ambedkar Memorial Park before taking our flight for Delhi as we had heard a lot about it being one of the modern tourist attractions. The memorial has been made in the memory of Dr. B R Ambedkar, one of the most popular social reformer and famous lawyer who drafted Indian Constitution after independence. That is why many people visit it and we also wanted to visit it. The credit for the construction of the memorial goes to the top leader of a political party of downtrodden and backward masses who had come to power in the State of UP. During our earlier trips to Lucknow about 45 years back, we had seen various well known historical monuments like Chota Imambada, Bara Imambada, Residency etc. and so we did not want to go there. However, after reaching the memorial we were disappointed to see its vast Lay out of stony statues. It is not a park and to go around the whole area of the Memorial during a a warm day (even in the month of March) is very tiresome, particularly for senior citizens. The time of our visit was around 11 AM and because of stony structures every where, without any shelters, we felt very uncomfortable. There is no greenery or shelter in this so called park for visitors to have some respite. The memorial occupies a large area with stony statues of elephants and icons of some leaders also. There are several stoops and structures with inscriptions. There are a large number of elephant statues and even these elephants have been made on the top of towers spread throughout the park., because elephant is the symbol of that political party. Whosoever had designed this Memorial should have taken care to plant trees and shelters from rains or sun. As such, this place should only be visited in evenings or on cloudy days. Because of shortage of time we did not go inside the halls and galleries exhibiting items in the memory of political leaders and social reformers of India.

    When in Lucknow, do what the nawabs would do. Hop on a rickshaw or a tonga (if you can get one from the rumi darwaza gate) and explore the old city. Do make a trip in the morning if you want to gorge on the best dessert ever made- Makhhan Malai. Available near the Chowk Chauraha (very close to KGMC), you will see a row of stalls selling this delectable dessert. Prices start at Rs 60 for 100 gm and do drop in at Gaya Prasad Makkhan Malai stall (near Paramapara sweet shop). Packing is also available in case you want to savour it at home.

    Also you can gorge on to some sumptuous poori and sabzi from sevak ram ki dukan (over 100 years old shop). Ask for directions from proprietor at Gaya Prasad stall. While at Sevak Ram you can also treat yourself to Black Carrot ka halwa (600 rupees kg) and it is out of this world.

    Also available are samosas and jalebis and khasta kachori.

    Crowded place. You will get anything here.From needle to gun in nearby areas;)
    Do try Netram kachori.Food quality good. Ignore the Ambience and service.
    Prakash kulfi - If you have already tried kulfi at good outlets in mumbai or delhi, then it won't attract you much.Pricewise overrated...

    If you are standing in front Bara Imambara facing towards it, Rumi Darwaza will be on your right side. This massive structure used to be the entrance of old Lucknow city. It is located in between Bara Imambara and Chota Imambara, so if you moving towards Choto Imambara from Bara Imambara you need to pass through Rumi Darwaza.

    A walk of 15 -20 minutes from bara Imambara through roomi darwaza is required to reach chota Imambara. Or there are auto's/tongas available in front of bara Imambara which can be hired to reach chota Imambara.

    Entrance ticket for chota Imambara can be taken at bara Imambara (Rs 50 combined ticket for visiting bara Imambara, bowli,bhul bhulaya & picture gallery) or taken at chota Imambara (I think rs 20 is the cost of entrance ticket to chota Imambara if taken at chota Imambara).

    Guide charges are fixed and displayed at entrance. I did not take guide here.

    Chota Imambara complex has a hamam and mausoleum too.

    One cannot enter inside the mausoleums here . Footwear has to removed only when we want to enter Chota Imambara. Chota Imambara is beautiful. On the day I went photography even with mobile phone was not allowed inside chota Imambara because of Muharram.

    A beautiful place not be be missed while in Lucknow.
