I went to Jalan Museum. This museum was built by Diwan Bahadur R.K. Jain in 1919 and has English and Dutch influence on architecture. There are more than 10,000 artefacts in this museum, mostly belonging to modern period. It is great place to go.

Amazing collection of decorative art in a real home. Away from the hustle and bustle of town set besides the river. Well worth going around with a knowledgeable guide or friend. Nice clean toilets and an amazing gift shop including locally made embroidered printed fabrics.

This museum is a relatively lesser known but can be a true bliss to an art lover. Being a private property you need to make a prior booking. The huge collection of artefacts will amaze you.
