This is a cosy display which can be broadly classified into two segments. The first segment carried items from daily life of the locals. The neat display here has a variety of clothes, ornaments, arms and votive items; The second segment has relics from the ancient temples and structures in the vicinity. We saw some magnificent statues of the Gods Shiv, Agni, Vishnu and Jain gurus and apsaras that dated between 8th and 13th century. We were the only visitors and it was quaint that they switched on the lights and fans for us. Tip: A must do for tourists who like museums
