About Rani Durgavati Museum, Jabalpur

Located in the centre of the city of Jabalpur, Rani Durgavati Museum is one of the major tourist attractions in the city. It was established in 1964 in memory of the valiant Gond queen Rani Durgavati, who sacrificed her life fighting for her mother land. It is a two storied structure that stands majestically in the middle of the city.

As you enter the premises of the museum, you will find a number of rare statues kept in the open, each with all the necessary information. These statues are very beautifully sculptured and make excellent photographs.   One of the masterpieces is the sculpture of wild boar at the entrance of the building. On the ground floor there are many ancient statues of Hindu and Jain Gods ranging from 3rd century to 18th century. They are kept in showcases and each contains information about it. A collection of rare coins ranging from 2nd BC to 1600 BC keeps you glued to the place.

The first floor contains letters written by Mahatma Gandhi and also original photographs of him and other freedom fighters. You also get firsthand information about the tribal life of Madhya Pradesh here. The dresses, equipments used by them, their houses, utensils, weapons and other items are displayed here.
