About Three kilometers away from Udaipur is the city of Ahar where this museum is located. This archeological museum holds a lot of ancient artifacts that represent the cultural rich ness of India’s history.
The Museum was created to display objects found in an excavation that was carried out in the area.
It is possible that some of the object back here date back to the 10th century while some are even older. Objects made of iron, earthen pots and several other trinkets have been put up as exhibits.
It isn’t just the museum that is worth seeing though. The city of Ahar has several chattris and arches dedicated to different kings that make it a huge tourist attraction. These tiny monuments are also important to the people as they honor these great rulers of the past. In fact, a lot of people visit this cite not to admire the beautiful architecture but as homage to the history that is represented by them. As it is a very short distance from Udaipur, it is certainly worth the day trip.
It is not only famous for its archaeological museum which has now become a recent hot topic amongst the circle of archaeologists, but has gained popularity because of the beautiful cenotaphs that are found here. One of the seven most royal cenotaphs found in Rajasthan, this spot is a hot bed for archaeological activity

Photography is prohibited but you can click by mobile. This is a place of history. The royal families members perform their last rituals after death there. All the great rulers of udaipur can be seen there. Please respect that place. The caretakers are great with good insight about that place and about the fact why photography is not allowed there
Ahar museum has display of archaeological material of Ahar people. Ahar culture people is considered as first farmers of south-eastern rajasthan. Also this culture is 5000 yeard old. The arms section of the museum is also fine. It also have painting section and sculpture section..
The place seems to be shut for renovations. The only "board" you see is: No photography and don't climb with shoes. There is some information outside, but only written in Hindi. Additionally, you can pay the caretaker for clicked pictures. The entrance is not marked. Ask the people around for help. I recommend a visit if you are into photography.
Very nice museum and collection is so good. Properly arranged and managed.
Awesome place. Beautiful view. But there is no maintenance. Place where dhadak movie shoots.
