Revi Karunakaran. I spent about three hours in this well maintained museum. The art works, crystal collections, ivory art collections, the paintings, a huge mural painting,... More

This is a private museum of Ravi Karunakaran. Even to date this is very well maintained. There are real antique items which are to date maintained very well. It is sad that they do not allow us to take pictures for our memories. As a consolation, picture postcards are available.

It is so motivating to see someone take so much time, energy and patience to collect so many things over so many years and preserve them. A nice collection of artifacts

The strikingly white building has a circular exterior with tall columns. It is right in the middle of the city, but is still so calm once you enter it. Has fantastic collection of glass, ceramic and ivory works.

I had not heard of this place earlier. It is by chance an educated taxi driver took me to this spot. I first thought it would be like any other museum...with items and antiques stored in a dusty environ...but, after seeing...aghast...what a wonderful world. U need to see it to believe it. The museum is not after publicity...and that is... More
