    Stepping into the Bara Imambara felt like entering a realm frozen in time. The grandeur of its architecture left me awestruck, as intricate designs adorned every corner. As I wandered through the labyrinthine Bhul Bhulaiya, echoes of centuries-old whispers seemed to linger in the air, adding to the mystique of this magnificent structure. The sheer scale of the Imambara's halls and courtyards left me humbled, evoking a sense of reverence for the artisans who crafted this marvel. From its imposing Rumi Darwaza to the serene calm of the Asafi Masjid, every element spoke volumes of Lucknow's rich heritage and cultural legacy. A visit to the Bara Imambara is not just a journey through history, but a soul-stirring experience that resonates long after you've left its hallowed halls.

    Gunjing refers to whiling away time at Hazratgunj with or without purpose, and is a popular activity.
    This area has some of the best restaurants in Lucknow - Moti Mahal, Shukla, Sharmaji, Royal Cafe, Bajpayee, Dastarkhwan etc. Also has excellent shops for chikan like Ada. Some excellent buildings like Vidhan Sabha are walkable.
    The place is in the metro route.

    Quite interesting and a nice area of ruins for a former site from the British Empire & colonialism era of India, with evidence of the Indian freedom struggles for Independence (especially with the bullet holes in the walls). Although some of the buildings were in a state of disrepair (although as they are ruins, it didn't matter much), it was nevertheless nice to look at and the garden areas were beautiful and relatively well maintained.

    Visit chowk to see the real old Lucknow chaos of people and vehicles. Also, the famous Idris biryani is located here. Unfortunately it was closed for renovations.

    Excellent place. We visited at the time of morning arti. One complaint...... The person singing arti was singing at the pitch of his voice that too on a mike resulting in a cacophony, instead of being beautiful to hear. If he sings, instead of shouting, arti would have been more divine. Pujari ji was much much more better to hear.

    This is a gate with excellent architecture wherein from one side there are three stories and from the other side it is a single story. The architecture and motifs are pleasing and remind of Awadh architecture and intellect.

    Not sure whether to give this park a 1 Star or 5 Star rating.
    1 Star A massive area of polished marble with steps in places you would not expect. A health and safety nightmare for walking.
    5 Star An awe-inspiring architectural Folly.

    AMINABAD IS THE OLDEST, CHEAPEST, MOST POPULAR AND CROWDED MARKET OF LUCKNOW. Aminabad is the oldest , most crowded and cheapest market of the Lucknow, located at about 3.5 Kms distance from Charbagh Railway station. One can purchase each and every thing at very competitive rates from the other markets.

    Good place to spend 2-3 hours with family.There are food options also available inside the zoo. I found the price a bit at the higher side considering the number of animals.
