  • It is a nice place to visit but nothing amazing in my humble opinion. There are people that will cover you up as you come in which I think is silly personally but they expect a tip afterwards so it probably explains the reason behind it. They also make you remove your shoes and leave them in a pile so anybody could walk off with them - luckily that didn't happen to us. This is one of old mosque of Delhi. It is situated in old Delhi. And one mat my visit the mosque. There are lots of staircase which you can climb to reach mosque. It is big as well.

  • Jama Masjid, Tehseenganj, Husainabad, Lucknow is a mosque is located at Tahseenganj near Unity College.. It is the most prominent mosque for whole Shia Community..from Majlis . . Azadari...Milad. .Jashn. .Mehfil. .and other important Religious events...this mosque is equally famous for all. The construction of this mosque was started in the year 1839 A.D. by His Majesty King Mohammad Ali Shah Bahadur (3rd King of Oudh) with the intention to surpass the Jama Masjid at Delhi in size.. ..But after his death the mosque was completed by his wife Queen Malika Jahan Sahiba in the year 1845 A.D. Built with "Lakhauri" bricks and plastered with lime, it is decorated with coloured stucco motifs. ...Standing on a square lofty terrace, it has a rectangular prayer hall, on the west with a magnificent facade of eleven arches. The central one is higher and provided with an unusually high doorway which rises above the roof in a sharply pointed arch decorated in coloured stucco. The prayer hall is surmounted by three pear-shaped high double domes decorated with an inverted lotus on the top and is also flanked by two octagonal four-storeyed tapering minarets on either side, crowned by "Chhatries" on the top. An Imambara known as Imambara Malika Jahan is also situated at the south of this mosque.

  • Historical place biggest mosque in utter perdesh , nice paint work inside must see one time.

  • Beautifully constructed mosque. Very well maintained. Azaan given here is so melodious. Prayers are offered regularly. Majlis during moharram and other sad occasions as well as jashn on good times also take place here. And yes, the images given here are NOT of this place instead, they are of a mosque inside the Bada Imambara.
