Najuf Ashraf or Shah Najaf (Mausoleum of Nawab Ghazi-ud-din Haidar) - Lucknow 1870's


Built approximately between 1814-1827, this imambara, is located near the Botanical Gardens along the Gumti river. Although this is the burial place of Nawab Ghazi-ud-din Haidar (r.1814-27) and his wife, this building has been designed in the style of an imambara, or tomb for a Muslim holy man.
