    Walk around the history

    You must visit this museum to appreciate the history. Most of the museum will have broken sculptures as most of it was destroyed during the British attack. There is area completely out-and-out of Ranis stuff, artifacts, weapons and paintings. There is a very good sound and light show for half hour at the ground floor.
