Chota Imambara is an imposing 19th century structure located in Lucknow, India. Set to the west of the Bada Imambara, the magnificent edifice is an attractive sight to behold.
The heritage charm sits pretty like a jewel in the midst of well-manicured gardens and is definitely worth a visit. The building reflects elements of Indo-Islamic, Persian and Charbagh architectural design.
Both the exterior and interior of the Imambara are exquisitely designed with mirror work, chandeliers and calligraphic verses from the Koran inscribed at various places.
The site is beautifully decorated during festivals, and is often referred to as the 'Palace of Lights' due to the extensive light decorations during the festivities.Places nearby:
