Veiled Rebecca...I fell in love with her. How can something be so beautifully sculpted. Said to be A melody in marble, and considered as the most beautiful art object in the world and masterpiece of Salar Jung Museum. A MUST SEE.

Its too big to be covered in detail in a day . Nice place to revisit our history. Too crowded on weekends. Canteen is not good here so please avoid having food here.
