"Simply Amazing"

You would hardly find S.R.C Museum of Indology in the regular list of tourist attractions; this does not come as a surprise because nestled in a residential area, this museum is easily overlooked. Spread over two floors, the entire collection belongs to Late Shri Ram Charan Sharma. The first storey is where you will find ancient astronomical instruments, crockery from England and other European nations and old and misprinted currency notes of India. The second storey is divided into two sections, the first displays some of the oldest manuscripts dating as far back as 1143 CE. Here you will find interesting exhibits like the Quran written by Aurangazeb or the entire Bhagvat Gita written on a paper as tiny as a computer chip. The second section is a mixed bag of various exhibits from different eras in history. Right from weapons, coins that are easily 7-8 centuries old and pre-historic tools to paintings from the Mughal and Rajput era, this section is definitely all about history. It is also high on the weird factor; check out the fossilized eggs, flexible stone, a piece of meteor and the floating stone. Do not forget to ask for a guide to take you around as it is included in your admission fee.
