islamic shrine with LCD clock

Shrine and LCD digital clock in the ruined Nawabi Mahal [Tomb], in the British Residency park in Lucknow (India)

The caretaker of the Nawabi Mahal is apparently obsessed by Time, as I counted seven clocks hanging from the walls in the upstairs room.­

This ruined building is called Nawabi Mahal [Tomb] or Nawabi Masjid [Mosque] or the Imambara.­ Not sure what the correct name is.­

I suppose that this is the tomb of one of the Nababs of Lucknow.­ If you have more information about the Nawabi Mahal, please post a comment!
