about shah najaf imambara

Built to commemorate Shah Najaf, the son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad, the Shah Najaf Imambara is another important monument to visit when you're in Lucknow. Resembling the tomb of Hazrat Ali (another name of Shah Najaf) in Iraq, this monument was built by Nawab Ghazi-ud-Din Haider and serves as Haider's own mausoleum, as according to his wishes, he was buried here along with his three wives. The place is also known as Karbala for the same reason.

Constructed on the bank of the river Gomti, this architectural marvel is designed in the shape of a dome. The designs on the tombs inside the monument will be a feast for your eyes. Ghazi-ud-Din Haider's tomb is made of silver and another tomb, belonging to one of his wives, is a beautiful one, made of silver and gold. The central dome is decorated with passages on its sides and on the birthday of Hazrat Ali, the entire place is illuminated, making it a breathtaking, magnificent sight to behold.

Not as attractive as bada imamabada but still worth a visit. You will like the structure. It has its own history.
