Must see · Monument · Architectural Building
Built in the 18th century, Bara Imambara remains a major place of worship for Shia Muslims. After walking through two enormous gateways, you'll enter a courtyard dominated by a grand mosque. Stand inside the huge central hall to discover one of the world's largest vaulted galleries, made of interlocking bricks with no extra structural support. You can also walk through the famed "Bhulbhulaiya," an intricate network of narrow tunnels leading to a rooftop balcony with panoramic views. Think about paying a guide to ensure you don't get lost within this massive complex.
