Bhool Bhulaiyaa

A part of the Bada Imambara or the Asafi Imambada, this is a labyrinth structure inside this monument. The Bada Imambada was built by Asaf- ud- Daulah, the Nawab of Awadh. An imambada is a shrine structure which is usually built by the Shia Muslims for the Azadari purpose. This labyrinth structure was made mainly to confuse enemies if they ever tried to attack the devotees during the time of their prayer.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa is a labyrinth of hundreds of narrow stairway passages, some of which also have dead ends, which was constructed to confuse intruders.

It is also know as Bara Imambara. There are 1000 doors in which 500 doors are act as dummy that's why it is termed as BHOOL BHULAIYAA also.. really a great architecture.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa is Lucknow's star. It is the centerpiece of Lucknow's tourist destinations. Housed inside the Bara Imambara, it overshadows everything else that the place contains. The Bhool Bhulaiyaa is basically a maze. A really, really complicated maze. The lanes are narrow, the ceiling low, light sparse, or, in some instances, none at all. It would be unfair to reveal too much about the Bhool Bhulaiyaa, it is an experience that should take every visitor by surprise! Photos sourced from Tripoto
Bhool Bhulaiya is a labyrinth of hundreds of narrow stairway passages, some of which have dead-ends, some end at precipitous drops while others lead to entrance or exit points. One should always take a Guide to explore Bhool Bhulaiya. The Bhool Bhulaiya was constructed to confuse any enemy intruder. The narrow lanes of the labyrinth can make anyone feel lost. The king and other few only knew the way out.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa, is a part of Bara Imambada and has numerous narrow staircase passages, some dead ends and corridors. The architecture and structure is simply majestic. It is said to be the world's largest arched room without any pillars. One should hire a guide to explore the routes or be prepared to get lost for hours. An interesting and a mysterious place to visit after all 'deewaron ke bhi kaan hote hain'.
