“Not bad, but not great”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

Amazing architecture, but the month - and the weather - made it a less than stellar experience. We plan on returning to Lucknow when it's not as foggy and dreary, and exploring the Bara Imambara further.

“Lucknow is nice ctiy”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

Lucknow is a safe place for tourists, we walk on the road side by 11 PM. but didn't felt anything awkward and people are very soft spoken. You can take a short break from your hectic schedule for relaxation. Its nearby to Delhi, so we can make a weekend vacation. When we visit Lucknow it was the time of Moharram and we able to see Jalsa of Moharram.
It was great to see.

“Historical Place. Gone back to those days”
Reviewed 10 December 2011

Of course take a guide to know exactly about this place. Try out Bhul bhulaiya with the help of guide.
The echo of match box or paper was excellent. Some one should hire Govt guide inside the building to know more about the imambara.
