Lucknow Vignettes 5

The Bara Imambara is a religious place with a majestic sanctity about it. Somehow it continues to defy the apparent decay all around it. There are photgraphs on its walls of the floods of 1923 when it was partially submerged. The play of lights from the ventilators is a magnificent display!

The dome

Repetitive geometrical designs on the doorways

The outer corridor seems to dwarf the people
