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.
