Hussainabad Picture Gallery

Hussainabad Picture Gallery is situated in front of the Chhota Imambara in Lucknow, the capital city of Uttar Pradesh. It was built by Nawab Mohammad Ali Shah as a summer cottage or 'Baradari' - literally meaning 'having 12 doorways'. The gallery houses the life size portraits of all Nawabs of Oudh. It is open on all days from 08:00 to 17:00 hrs.

Adjacent to this gallery is the Hussainabad Clock Tower. This 67 m high gothic tower, built in 1887, has the largest clock in India.
