Bada Imambara is a huge complex, situated in the old city of Lucknow. One of the most famous monuments of the city, the Imambara is significant not only from historical, but also cultural and heritage point of view. The complex dates back to the year 1784 and was founded by the then Nawab of Awadh, Asaf -ud-Daula. Bada Imambara of Lucknow is neither a mosque, nor a mausoleum. Rather, it is a complex that is made up of a number of buildings, including Asfi mosque, the Bhul-Bhulaiyah (the maze) and a summer palace with running water.

Beautiful pictures. Reminds me of Hyderabad . Very very similar.
Asad-ud-daula... The Hindu had a very interesting article about him on Sunday. He was the guy who made Thumris popular :)
