"The Grand museum of India"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Feb 7, 2017
This wont be hyperbole if I say this is the grandest museum of India. You need at least a day to discover it sufficiently even a day is not sufficient. This is really huge and it has everything that a museum should have. It describes the great history of Mughals and dynasties of south Indian empires. It has a planetarium and lot many other commun and uncommon things that will leave you surprised. The beautiful paintings and their histories and the arms the textiles and the equipment and more and more and more. This is completely recommendable place to visit whether you are a Hyderabadi or not. If you are there then must be there.

"For art lovers"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 28, 2016
Salar jung museum is one of the biggest museums in India. Salar jung museum is a must visit place for all types of art lovers. You have paintings, dolls, ceramics, ivory furnitures and many more. It can take you 3 hours or more for seeing the entire museum.

I was amazed seeing a statue which was dual faced, ie, it appeared like a man on the front side and the back side resembles a woman. The woman is only seen through the reflection on a mirror placed behind the statue.

The other highlight was that of the musical clock which is located on the ground floor. There is a seating area around the musical clock where you cout wait and experience the same.

Salar Jung Museum is one of the chief attractions of the Pearl City of Hyderabad. Salar Jung Museum is one of the oldest museums in Hyderabad and is known for its vast collection of artefacts.

Salar Jung Museum is situated on the banks of River Musi. This Museum exhibits artefacts which were collected by Salabat Jungs, the Nizam of Hyderabad. The collection of artefacts was initiated by Nawab Mir Turab Ali Khan or Salar Jung I and it was carried over by Nawab Mir Laiq Ali Khan, who was also known as Salar Jung II. But it was Mir Yousuf Ali Khan, Salar Jung III, who expanded the collection to make it the biggest one-man antique collection in the world.

Salar Jung Museum consists of about 40,000 items in its collection, which was collected from different parts of the world. This museum was opened for public display by the former Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

Salar Jung Museum has a Founder's Gallery in which the portraits of the Salar Jungs are displayed. Stone sculptures, bronze images, painted textiles, wooden carvings, miniature paintings, modern art, ivory carvings, jade carvings, metal-ware, manuscripts, etc. are some of the Indian items exhibited here.

Carpets, manuscripts, glass, metal-ware, furniture, lacquer, etc. are some of the items collected from the Middle East. Porcelain, bronze, enamel, lacquer ware, embroidery and paintings from China, Japan, Tibet, Nepal and Thailand are also on display at this museum. Oil and water paintings from England, France, Italy and Germany can also be found here.

The statue of Veiled Rebecca, the statues of Marguerite and Mephistopheles, daggers of Mughal Emperor Jehangir and Shah Jahan and Queen Noor Jehan, the sword of Aurangzeb, etc. can also be seen here. A collection of jade can also be found in the collection of artefacts at Salar Jung Museum.
