I didn't know anything about Indian painting before visiting this museum and thus was quite surprised to find such a vibrant contemporary art scene. There are many mandala like, and spiritual inspired works the like of which you won't see in museums in Europe. The museum also has a large collection 19th century works but I didn't like these so much, as they seem derivative of the more skillful works painted in Europe at the time. If you are a student don't forget to bring your id and you will pay only one rupee instead of the regular 300 Rs. foreigners ticket.
