National Art Gallery - Review
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. Inside the museum, you have paintings from regions of India that are renowned for their rich art; like Rajasthan, Deccan area, Thanjavur and Kangra. Its sandalwood sculptures are another prominent draw of this Chennai attraction.

National Art Gallery, Chennai Reviews
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.

The National Art Gallery situated in Egmore, Chennai, is one of the oldest art galleries in India. Constructed with red stones sourced from Satyavedu in Andhra Pradesh, the Gallery was built in 1906 in Indo-Sarsenic architecture and houses paintings from Thanjavur, Rajasthan, Kangra and Deccan areas, as well as sandalwood sculptures. The Gallery has remained closed since 2002, as part of the structure suffered damage.
