Built in the 18th century, Bara Imambara remains a major place of worship for Shia Muslims. After walking through two enormous gateways, you'll enter a courtyard dominated by a grand mosque. Stand inside the huge central hall to discover one of the world's largest vaulted galleries, made of interlocking bricks with no extra structural support. You can also walk through the famed "Bhulbhulaiya," an intricate network of narrow tunnels leading to a rooftop balcony with panoramic views. Think about paying a guide to ensure you don't get lost within this massive complex. Using our online itinerary creator, Lucknow attractions like Bara Imambara can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Awesome palace, one must hire guide for not more than ₹100 + ₹50 ticket. They will explain everything about the historical facts about this place, it's very interesting. Highly recommended when you visit Lucknow.
  • Such a rich culture of ancient India. Stories and legends will awe you. Assimilation of cultures from Arab world and art forms is magnificent. You will need complete 1 day to explore this place fully and don't forget to hire a guide. Your experience will be enhanced by their guide and storytelling.
