Chota Imambara - Review

This beautiful building was built in 1837-40 by Nawab Muhammad Ali Shah. It is also known as the Husainabad Imambara. The whole place is beautifully decked up like a pretty bride. Attractive chandeliers brought in from Belgium are one of the major point of interests to the place. The golden dome, silver throne and gold-edged mirrors add to the extravagant prettiness of the place. The graves are cornered with railings and covered in pashmina. There’s a stupendous monument akin to the Taj Mahal which is a supporting building. There’s a water tank with supporting buildings on either side. Some interesting building on either side is the “Shahi Hamam” or Royal Baths. The place is also graced with a beautiful mosque inside it.

Chota Imambara, Lucknow Reviews

  • On of the best looking monuments in Lucknow. It's architecture is very beautiful and a lot of peoples visit here daily.

  • What's good The carvings on the wall are beautiful. Place is serene. What's not good Scale is small and takes not more than 10 minutes. What to do Compared to Bada Imambara, this is a carving on the wall. It's beautiful but small. Enjoy the serenity.

  • Historic place, Not maintained well. But can be visited once considering that it's a historical place. Bada Imambara is much better.

  • Being one of the important monuments of the Lucknowi tourist zone this place may not please by the first look as the compound looks a bit overcrowded with inner monuments. But yes the central pond does provide a beautiful sight and once you enter the Imambada you can see many things that reflect great Awadh history. Give yourself some time and explore the magnificent interiors.

  • Very nice place. I was there for very less time so did not get the opportunity to hire the guide, but will recommend to hire one so one can know the history. The Chora Imambara is kind of replica of Bada Imambara but as the name suggests smaller than the later. It was kind of under renovation but still open for visit, the look is new from the out because of renovation.
