In the middle of the wretched cesspool of filth, depravity, and disease that is Delhi, sits a jewel of an institution. I couldn't believe such a magnificent collection could exist in such a vile hellhole. Thankfully the Indian government has a little revenue left over from building their nuclear bomb, and have put it towards something more life-affirming. The collection... More

Fantastic food for the art lovers. The artists have done amazing job with the sculptures, paintings, abstracts everything. You should check the calendar for events, there are nice exhibitions happening around and if you are luck you might also meet some celebrity like I met Naseeruddin Shah!!

This place has exclusive exhibitions. Mostly some exhibit or the other is on, but do check once before you go. The location is very nice.

Well I have never thought that such wonderful place exist in India. This place is really beautiful and built for Art lovers. Lightning is really good and it really shows the true nature of the art. You can visit this place for couple of hours and still not feel any glitch of tiredness. Location is near to India Gate.
