Visited in december 2016. To be honest, I didn't expect anything from this place.But this place exceeded my expectations by a big margin. There are 3 buildings:bawli, bhool bhulaiya and imam bara mosque..you will find guides in each of these buildings...There's lot of history behind these magnificient structure.1 interesting point is that many walls of this structure is build with food grains. this is the major attraction in lucknow.It will take about 2 hours to completely explore.this may well be extended If you
get lost inside bhool bhulaiya without a guide like us. Over all a place worth visiting.

We had an English speaking guide who showed us the architecture and took us around. Sometimes it was hard to understand but regarding the fact that in that region it is not common for people to speak English like in South India the guide was quite Ok, the guide fee was 200INR plus tip. The ticket price was extra.

It is a must see tourist spot. We took a tonga ride in front of Bada Imambara, which was exciting.

If you want to carry your bags with you you have to pay a separate fee for it. Otherwise there is a place to keep your bag. You must take a guide to understand the intricacies inside. The charges for the guides are mentioned on a chart. Definitely go to the Bhul Bhuliya which is also inside, though if there are elderly people it is best avoided. It is compulsory to take a guide to the Bhul Bhuliya or you may actually get lost. To see everything it will take you around one and half hours to two hours.

There is a place to keep your shoes before you enter the Imambara.
