About Lucknow
Lucknow, the capital city of Uttar Pradesh, is located on the banks of the Gomti River. Lucknow could be termed the cultural center of northern India where people are too polite and have their own charming culture and tradition, difficult to find elsewhere. Bara Imambara and Jami Masjid - LucknowThe beautiful city with parks, palaces, gardens and imposing architectural monuments, Lucknow became one of the most celebrated centers of Oriental opulence, music, dance, drama , poetry and scholarship during its glorious days of Nawabs (1775 AD - 1856 AD). The exotic and highly cultured Lucknow with all its pomp and splendour is very much able to accommodate the modernity, keeping the tradition and culture alive altogether. The land of endearing 'Pahkle Aap' Tehzeeb (culture), Lucknow is also renowned for its silks, perfumes, jewelry, mouth-watering cuisines, and nawabi etiquettes.

Tourist Attractions Lucknow
The Bada Imambada
The Bada Imambada was built by Asaf-ud-Daula in the year 1784. Its construction was a part of the famine relief project, where a number of labourers were appointed to build this Imambada. It is a huge vacant hall with a length of 50 m and a height of 15 m. Close to the Imambara is the Bhul Bhulaiya - an amazing maze that might need a tourist guide to get through.

Rumi Darwaza
Rumi Darwaza was also also built as a famine relief work during the famine of 1783. Said to be a facsimile of one of the gates of Constantinople, this towering monument (60 ft high), can match any similar structure in point of beauty and splendour.

Chota Imambada
Also known as Husainabad Imambada, this imambada was constructed by Mohammed Ali Shah in 1837. It is believed to be the mausoleum of Mohammed Ali Shah himself. The main imambada is topped by a golden dome, which is supposed to be the tomb of Ali Shah and his mother. There also lies the incomplete watchtower called the satkhanda just opposite the tomb. There is also the tallest clock tower estimated to be 67 m high overlooking the Husainabad tank.

Jami Masjid
Jami Masjid is the largest mosque of Lucknow. The construction of this Masjid was commenced by Mohammed Shah and was completed by his wife after his death in the 1840s. There are wonderful paintings on the ceilings with the leaf and fruit bowl patterns, a luring view of the place.
