Lalbhai Dalpatbhai Museum Reviews & Ratings
Good one. Buddha statues Good arrangements of things. Specialty : What I found special in this is that they have line drawings of olden times kept for presentation its like half done sketches and its beautiful.
Also called institute of indology, this place is absolutely beautiful with the amalgamation of concrete with nature. Peacocks roam freely here and you get to witness the conservation of ancient Jain manuscripts.
A must see exhibition of Indian drawings curated by Director and veteran art historian Ratan Parimoo. Lovely space designed by Balkrishna Doshi. An oasis of peace in the midst of busy Navrangpura. The next door N.C. Mehta collection within the same campus is also not to be missed.
Superb experience. What an amazing place. So peaceful. Can't believe that this place is on main road but after entering the campus, you feel you are far away from main road. What a collection of pictures, coins, idols. Amazing collection of Jain, shaive, Buddhist sculptures. Got to see few jain tirthankara idols so closely. If you see into the eyes of idols closely , you will start feeling something different. Above all, what a collection in library. Two sections in library. One for books and another one for manuscripts. They have 80000+ manuscripts in the library. Some of the books are so rare. This institute also invite scholars to speak on various topics.
The place is very well maintained. Everything is kept in a way that is clear to see, plus they also have descriptions.
