Excellent idea of trapping the intruders

Though I did not get an english speaking guide, I took one speaking Hindi, just to being me back safely. The Mr. Hussain's voice was melodious and his Hindi was mixed with urdu, very poetic. Rs. 50/person. He even challenged me to go down the building. I can not take stairs going down for it. I have to take few steps up in one way and then go down. Again I have to take few steps up and take another and reach finally down. He showed no. 100 written in one entrance and brought me to the same place in no time. The acoustic is good. He whispered softly from nowhere, I could here it. Similarly he lit a matchstick - that is head clearly so far away. I never switched on my Mobile light - just to experience Bhool Bhulaiya fully. One of the best place - not to miss it . On the top of the buildings, we can see the old monuments of Lucknow in a semi circular fashion. Lovely view.

Excellent

Great place with historical value ,,Em pressed with the concept of design and knowing how bhool bhulaiya really came to existence.Em pressed with the big infrastructure and how the ruler of that era rule and own the city.Good romantic place and also suitable for family/group hangouts.

Nice place to visit

Bhool Bhulaiya is one of the most important place to visit in Lucknow. This historical place will really attract the tourists and will impress them. The longest hall without pillars, bouli and the most important Bhool Bhulaiya, it will for sure amaze you.As you once enter the maze you might end up going round and round and get confused and is really huge and will take time to explore...

A Bhool Bhulaiya actually!

This is somewhere 12km far from the heart of city but mind it just 1km from this is another great market, name I don't remember but you get lot of stuff there i. e. Lucknowi Kurta and all! Ok so about the Bhool Bhulaiya, it's actually Chota Imambara and there is one more place 500m from it i. e Bada Imambara, but in look wise they are vice versa. The Chota one is bigger and Bada one is smaller. So the whole fee is 50 Rs which includes Bada Imambara, Chota Imambara, Art gallery and one more small place adjacent to Bhool Bhulaiya. There is guide facility available. For children it's mandatory and even for couples, to maintain the walls actually!. And auto people they will just loot you. Don't take any auto just use Google maps for going to art gallery. Trust me it's walkable araam se. The auto guys take 30 per person for no joy!. The Bhul Bhulaiya is good, it's actually a Bhool Bhulaiya. You keep coming to same place when you want. It will be better to take a guide because he will tell you about the story about that. Don't take guide in art gallery and in the place adjacent to Bhool Bhulaiya, they might force you but don't take. Even for Vada Imambara don't take! It's a good place to check out!
