Bhul Bhulaiya in Lucknow

Lucknow Bada Imambara

This photo is of Bada Imambara, located in Lucknow (India) – one of the prime tourist attractions of the city. Apart from mosques and well, this magnificent Mughal period architectural building has Bhul Bhulaiya (what is a maze), a three-dimensional labyrinth with passages interconnected to each other. It is, possibly, one of the only surviving mazes in India and is unique in its design. It is often said that one may enter into this maze, but the way to exit it so difficult that you necessarily require a tourist guide. One can get a panoramic view of the city and the Gomti River, on the banks of which the city of Nawab is located.
