Build by the fourth Nawab, commissioned the building during the drought year of 1784 AD to help the poor make a living. However, from the time it was finished, it became a symbol of pride and grandeur of Lucknow.
This was one my first trips to the North, pretty much an unexpected one. It was a tough decision to choose between where the destination would be. Finally I made up my mind to take that 1 hour drive from Alambagh Bus Terminal (Lucknow) to Bara Imambara.
Hardly 7KM from the main town, yet a beautiful get away from the city, this gotta be one of the best places I have ever visited till now. As soon as I got out of my car, there it was, the main gate standing tall signifying the precious culture and history of Lucknow.
