Bhool Bhulaiya, Lucknow (must see)
Legends say that the building has several blocked passageways that used to lead to a location near the Gomti river, to Faizabad (the former seat of power of the Nawabs), to Allahabad and even to Delhi. These passages have been sealed because of long disuse and disappearance of adventurers who tried to explore them.
Make sure you are fit before going inside – not recommended for elders as there are many staircases (some of which are very narrow) and the maze can be quite hectic. However, once you reach the roof, the view of the city is breathtaking.
Note also that on one side of the Bhool Bhulaiya (above the India room) there is a whispering gallery with amazing acoustics.
