Very beautiful and peaceful place for visit if you are coming to Lucknow please must visit this place spend some time and enjoy the beauty of this place. Lots of interesting things inside the Imambara. Atmosphere is very good and people also very friendly.
This historical monument has a beautiful exterior and exquisite interior. It lives up to its name of "palace of lights". Warning: the toilet is rather rundown and the on-site guide doesn't speak English well and has a peculiar temperament
this is a very good place one must visit this place it has its own beauty and Glory this place is related to the history of India and gives motivation to the Travellers and tell them about the culture and heritage of India we must be proud on this monument because nothing can come in between we and our patriotism I think the reason behind this monuments is to unite every Indian and see every religion in form of a United body named as India. every Indian must feel proud to have this monument on his land and he or she whatever religion follows, will not opened for the existence of this monument with these words I expect you to visit there and feel every word I have said thank you very much.
It’s a very interesting rich in Mughal history place but yet again the maintenance of such places which are a national heritage should be maintained otherwise it seems like a dirty old place not worth visiting. When we entered there was distinct foul smell coming from the fountain pond there where the water was so dirty that even flies and mosquitoes were flying in flocks these things can become hazardous and become breeding grounds for dengue and other diseases The management needs to take much more care of the cleanliness of such historical monuments.
Such a very beautifull and peace area. You may get food stuff easily.. attractive place
