Some might say that a city that’s not even a century old shouldn’t really have a museum, but we do. There isn’t much to show save for some mammoth fossils and random artifacts unearthed when the city foundations were being laid, but so what? The museum was closed the day I went for a walk and click but this statue caught my eye.
Some similar statutes are scattered through the atrium. This one in covered in river clay, a method used to clean relics of grime and city pollution without damaging the stone itself. The museum was designed by Le Corbusier, who planned the entire city back in the 1950s. One thing I am particularly proud of are the captions in Braille next to the pieces on display. Of all the museums I’ve visited in India, this is the only one to have this facility.
