The only place I visited post lockdown,
But seems once again...,
We have to set some grounds,
To live the norms not only for us,
but for the world around,
To re -build us and be better surround,
To paint our earth 🌍 Healthy and Sound !!
Bara_Imaambara ! The place which should be in everyone's list, visiting Lucknow.
This Iconic monument was built by Asaf-ud-Daula, Nawab of Awadh in 1784. The building comprises of Bowli (a step well with running water) , two gateways, a Grand hall and the Bhulbhulaiya. It's said that there are 1024 ways to reach the terrace but only two ways to come back. Trust you me the architecture of this monument will blow your mind and views from top will have all your heart.
Well I'm not going to overwhelm you with information about this place. What else Wikipedia is for? Lol
