Bara Imambara

The bara imambara also known as the Asfi Imambara after the Nawab who built it, attracts Muslims all over India during festivals, most importantly the muharram. Moreover, it attracts tourists for its spectacular maze that is popularly known as Bhool-Bhulaiya. This is said to be the world’s biggest unsupported structure that is built without the use of wood or any metal. Its central hall holds the position of the largest arched hall in the world.

Hazratganj Market

Modelled after Queen’s Street London, the Hazratganj Market is called the heartthrob for the shoppers. You can find the best quality and variety of chikan embroidery at Hazratganj Market. Apart from the chikan embroidery, Hazratganj can provide you with all types of things you can expect in a world class market. Don’t forget to treat yourself with Lucknowi cuisines when you visit Hazratganj Market (or anywhere else in Lucknow).

Lucknow Zoo

If you love nature and wildlife, you would love to visit the Nawab Wazid Ali Shah Prani Udyan (Lucknow Zoo) which is a house for 463 mammals, 298 birds and 72 reptiles representing 97 species. If you are on a tight schedule, you can take the toy train ride to have a quick glimpse of the major portions of the zoo.

Chota Imambara

Chota imambara, also known as Imambara Hussainabad Mubarak, is also one of the favourite monuments for the tourists who come for sightseeing. It is a congregation hall for Shia Muslims and a mausoleum for the Nawab of Awadh and his mother.

Adjacent to the Asafi Imambara stands the mighty and glorious Rumi Darwaza which was once built as the entrance gate for Lucknow. Now it is Lucknow’s icon and is a mark for the entrance of old Lucknow.

Hussainabad Clock Tower

India’s tallest clock tower, Hussainabad Clock Tower, resides in Lucknow. Built as a replica of BIGBEN clock tower of London, this tower attracts many tourists whole year long.

Ambedkar Memorial Park
