Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum, Amritsar

The Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum is a museum located in Company Bagh, Amritsar.

It served as the summer palace of the first king of the Sikh Empire, Maharaja Ranjit Singh, after whom the museum is named.

The museum now provides an insight into the life the Maharaja alongside the history, art and architecture of the Sikh community between the 18th and 19th century.

The museum is at a distance of 1.5 km from Amritsar Junction and about 4 km from The Golden Temple.

Converted into a Museum in 1977, the museum consists of a lot of artefacts and personal items of the Maharaja such as his armour and weaponry.

It also displays fantastic paintings, various manuscripts and coins from centuries, long gone.

This reflects the secular spirit of the Maharaja and the rich history of the Sikh province.

The paintings mostly depict scenes from the Sikh monarch’s court and camp.

Among all of them, the most famous among observers is the one depicting the city of Lahore. 

The palace is surrounded by the famous Rambagh Gardens popular for its statue of the legendary king with his horse.
