Chhota Imambara

The landmark of Lucknow, it is also known as the Hussainabad Imambara since it was the office of the Hussainabad Trust, the previous owners of the city. This is located in the Old City Area. The monument was built in the 19th century under the 'food for work' scheme which was commissioned by Nawab Muhammad Ali Shah when the region witnessed a very serous famine. The beautoful white monument is built in the Charbagh style with a stream flowing along the middle of the garden. The architecture is Indo- Islamic though a lot of Persian influemce can also be seen. There are a lot of Islamic callicraphy carvings done inside this Imambara. This was the mausoleum of the nawab and a number of members of his family.

छोटा इमामबाड़ा*छोटा इमामबाड़ा को हुसैनाबाद इमामबाड़ा भी कहा जाता है। छोटा इमामबाड़ा का निर्माण 'मोहम्मद अली शाह' ने करवाया था। छोटे इमामबाड़े की मुख्य चोटी पर एक सुनहरा और बड़ा गुम्बद है।

6.Chota Imambara:-It is located adjacent to the Bara Imambara , Chota Imambara is not as big as Bara Imambara, however It has its own charm, exterior is just amazing , but the inside is the real attraction, well decorated, beautiful chandeliers in many shapes, designs and colors are everywhere, and it has been preserved really beautifully. You can see "Taziya" of different era. I found The Shahi Hamam is quite an attractive place but poorly kept.
