An absolutely glorious collection of Gandhara Buddhist Sculptures. (2nd and 3rd century AD, from the areas in Pakistan and Afghanistan).

There are many stunningly beautiful items here and some very large ones.

I was amazed and thrilled to find this collection. It is an absolute gem of a collection. Am absolute highlight of anything I have seen anywhere.

The large, thick, hard-backed book of the collection is packed with photographs and descriptions and is also excellent.

Lovers of Buddhism and Indian Art in general should not miss this. It is very close to the Rose Garden.

Like in any other cities you don’t have to hop for different places for different museums.Here in Chandigarh, except the dolls museum, other museums are in the same complex.The entry fee is very nominal viz.Rs.2/- for each in Govt. Museum and Art Gallery and Rs.5/- for photography. The museum of architecture was under renovation so we didn’t able to visit.The museum of evolution of life is a must visit for school children show casing the evolution of life in details.

We were on a personal visit to Chandigarh. I have visited the gallery 35 years back and had some memories, so wanted to spend some time. In particular, I could recollect a painting of Guru Govind Singh (it was still there !!). The gallery is well maintained. Especially interesting are unique bronze pieces and Buddha in Greco-Roman style and with a mustache. Overall worth a visit.

This museum is full of interesting, well curated collections - I could have stayed there all day and re-visited many times if time had permitted. Thank you.
