Shah Najaf Imambara is situated at middle of the city and at the Rana Pratap Road. Not very important as compare to other Imambara but excellent place to visit and see the mughal time building and its past.

My advice would be to couple your trip to saharaganj mall with this imambara for this is located just at the edge of saharaganj mall. This is a good place to... More

Entry is through a narrow archway into a beautiful large courtyard filled with flowers and a central lawn. Further on is the mausoleum itself (shoes and socks off) which contains a labyrinth of small passageways as well as... More

This is a small mosque and tomb complex with some rather unusual chandeliers and paintings and odds and ends of fascinating stuff. It's a pleasant and interesting out if the way place, but a good choice to follow an early morning visit to the Botanical Gardens up the road as you can walk here in 10 mi Utes from the... More
