Durgah Hazrat Abbass [Lucknow].
Photographer: Ali, Abbas
Medium: Photographic print
This photograph of Dargah Hazrat Abbas from 'The Lucknow Album: containing a series of fifty photographic views of Lucknow,' was taken by Darogha Abbas Ali c.1874. The Dargah Hazrat Abbas was built during the reign of Nawab Saadat Ali Khan (r.1798-1814) as a Shia Muslim shrine. This photograph shows the west-side of the courtyard, where the shrine can be entered. The style of the fluted dome is similar to the dome of the Husainabad Imambara built between 1837-1842.
