Exceptional Places to Visit

Bada Imambara is one of the largest and most distinctly arched buildings in the world, the hall with a width of 50 by 16 meters and a height of more than 15 meters, has no ceiling beams or pillars. The confusing web called Bhool Bhulaiya, which borders the main hall on the first floor and connects the building to the river, makes things a little more interesting.
