One of the oldest of art galleries in India, the National Art Gallery is a striking melange of spectacular architecture and a very interesting array of collections on display. The attractions lures visitors at a first glance itself, owing to the red stones used in this Indo-Sarsenic architecture marvel. These were sourced from another Indian state Andhra Pradesh.

Really worth to go, costs 15 INR for each person. Rich in heritage collections and may consume a full day to enjoy & explore entire five buildings... This place is so cool, a good natural looking atmosphere. The most important arts collections made this place as important. All tourists must visit here and cherish the moments & valuable collections.
"Amazing gallery and looking so awesome"
It's historic place we see the photographs of old people and it's exactly located next to the library. Many events are conducted here and place is well maintained and building architecture are well maintained and people use to check the building if any repairs has to be done. Gallerys are really so awesome and people here are good at taking care of the pictures and art stuff. One should see if they want to know abt history.
