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.

An awesome place showing rich culture of Lucknow city. It showcases the great architecture and houses a beautiful environment. You will surely love this place.
It's an old place in the heart of Lucknow. Its a Muslim religious place. Mostly dedicated to Shia clerics. It has Mughal architecture and has prayer halls and labyrinth which are worth watching. The ticket for Indians is for 50 rupees. For children below 7 years half of this price. For foreign tourists it's 500, a tour guide is recommended if you are visiting labyrinth. It's very easy to get lost in it. Only an experienced person can help you get out. It's fun time with family. Tour guides take extra money for their service around 100 rupees for a batch of Indian visitors. The place is not well lit in the evening. No electric bulbs and source of light so prefer to visit couple of hours ahead of sunset, it's difficult to navigate internals of labyrinth in dark as it has steep steps. The place would be much better if it's maintained by properly. Old building is falling at places. Walls chipping away. Colors fading. I would call it a one time visit.
Best memorable place which is came with our ancient times ....nice place and tourist love to visit again and again here .....there is mystery of king and queen and also the British empire history for this place
Best place to visit in Lucknow...my childhood spend here by visiting on weekends.☺️
None of this place begins to give this place, I have not seen the beautiful place with this in my life, what is the matter that the first thing that is beautiful from the inside as it is as such a workmark of the inside and not. There will be a heart of Lucknow City
