Sight Seen in

National Museum

This glorious if dusty museum is full of treasures. Mind-bogglingly ancient, sophisticated figurines from the Harappan civilisation, almost 5000 years old, include the remarkable Dancing Girl, and there are also some fine ceramics from the even older Nal civilisation. Other items include Buddha relics, exquisite jewellery, miniature paintings, medieval woodcarvings, textiles and musical instruments.

Allow at least two hours. Bring identification to obtain an audioguide. There's also a cafe.

Next door is theArchaeological Survey of India, which stocks publications about India’s main archaeological sites.
