Bara Imambara, Lucknow


Bara means big, and an imambara is among the grandest building of Lucknow. It was build by Asaf-ud-Daula, Nawab of Awadh, in 1784. The building also includes the large Ashi mosque, the bhul-bhuliaya (The labyrinth), and Bowli, a step with running water. It is often called as an accidental architecture because it has 1024 ways to reach the terrace but only one way to come back.
