The Backpack Girl #11 - A Visit To Kangra Museum

in travel •  4 months ago

Hey guys!!



I can't tell you the time I have been having for the past couple weeks. After travelling to the capital of the country where I checked out several ancient monuments, about which I have made several posts here, I also traveled to the northern region of Himachal Pradesh which is such a beautiful state of India.

Today I want to share photos of my visit to a museum in a place called Dharamshala which is a very popular tourist place in India. The museum is called Kangra Museum and is home to rich cultural heritage of Kangra region.

The Museum was opened in 1990 and has numerous idols and paintings, textiles, sculptures, jewellery, coins and objects of cultural anthropology. I hope you enjoy the photos that I clicked while I was there.

Always amazed when I see artifacts from history and wonder about the hands and mind that created them.

·

Me too. Love to know about their history :)

Thats seems like a wonderful find near Dharamshala. Was it crowded like other tourist places when you visited? Any fees to enter? How far from Dharamshala is it, like 30 mins? And were you traveling by public transport?

Sorry for so many questions but was curious to know as questions keep coming up on blog too, so more you know better it is 😊😊

·

Yeah, it is a wonderful place. No, it wasn't that crowded at all and it is only about an hour from Dharamshala.
