Photograph of the Gateway of Husainabad Bazaar in Lucknow, taken by Baker and Burke in the 1860s, from the Edward Molyneux Collection: Album entitled 'Indian Photographs'. The Husainabad Imambara was constructed during the reign of Nawab Muhammad Ali Shah of Awadh (r.1837-1842). An imambara is a general term for a building used to celebrate the festival of Muharram. This complex of the Husainabad Imambara is rectangular with an impressive gateway on each side. The complex consists of a forecourt and main court. The imambara is located within the main court and has two tombs on either side. This is a view of an outer gateway of the Husainabad Imambara, with traders on either side of the road in the foreground.
