We landed up stopping at this place to ask for directions but were intrigued by the quality of the sculptures in the lawns. Decided to take a look as it is supposed to be one of the largest private collections of ivory in the world & it was definitely worth the hour we spent there. The ivory carvings are exquisite...

We visited here due to recommendation by a friend. Its a nice private museum and displays things which were collected by the family of Mr. Revi K. over a period of many years. Some of the artifacts are unique. The pricing of the museum @ Rs. 150 per head is on a relatively higher side though.

The Revi Karuna Karan Museum is among the biggest privately held collection of crystals in the world but has managed to tuck itself away within an oyster shell of anonymity for nearly a decade. One of the reasons why not many know of this glittery cornucopia is a telling pointer to the evanescence of tourism ethos that historically marked Kerala’s... More
