    Good but not very good

    In the cool and calm surroundings of BHU is the Bharat Kala Bhavan which has established in 1920A. The and has a vast collection of paintings, Hindu and Buddhist sculptures and other materials of archaeological studies. In the main hall of the Bhawan, there is a figure of a man standing on one leg and one hand on his hip and lifting a mass of stone above his head, with one hand. The figure is said to be of Lord Krishna lifting Govardana. In the halls of the Bharat Kala Bhawan, there are many rare images that testify to the existence of Krishna cult in Kashi in 15th and 16th century Gupta period. It has the miniature paintings from the courts of Mughals and the Hindu Princes of Punjab Hills. Visit : Monday to Saturday. Opens from 1030 to 1600.
