Albert HallFinally, after checking out all the important structures within the wall and a quick lunch, we moved towards the Albert Hall museum – located just outside the walled part of the city. The stone for the construction of the building was laid by Albert Edward in 1876 and hence on completion in 1887, was named after him. Although initially, it was to serve the purpose of a Town Hall, it was converted to a museum to display the rich cultural heritage of Rajasthan. Albert Hall displays a huge collection of paintings, tapestries, structures and statues of ivory, stone and metal, various other jewelry and other precious items. What was pretty interesting to see was that the museum housed various foreign collectibles – ranging from statues and sarcophagus from ancient Egypt to vases from ancient Greece and Rome along with numerous items from Turkey, Far East and Middle East. Check out the link to check the collection.
And the last and final stop was Albert Hall museum. This place is very special. This place got a connection with the name of Jaipur as The Pink city. Albert Hall museum is named after the spouse of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert of Coburg & Gotha. He laid the foundation of this place in 1876. In order to welcome him to the city, the Maharaja then painted the city in Pink. So the city is called Pink city as you can see all of the building in the city center are pink.
