Spectacular museum showing about 10,000 artifacts from south India, with oldest artifacts dating back 2000yrs. A trip worth having to this museum. Highly recommended.

Some really interesting artefacts with informative guides. They do however push you to buy things. Worth a visit - a bit like a crazy car boot sale.
