Art Gallery Jammu :Dogra Art Gallery - 3

Prehistoric terracotta objects are great views at this museum. Some terracotta busts of women with typical Gandhara facial features and Greek hairstyles are believed to date back to the 4th and 8th centuries AD. A rich collection of miniature paintings represents examples from the Jammu, Basbhli and Kangra schools. There are also ancient coins, silver and copper ornaments and Sanskrit and Pharsi manuscripts.

This is located in the formerly Pink Hall of the old Mubarak Mandi Palace Complex. This museum houses 800 rare and delicately beautiful paintings from different schools of paintings viz: Basohli, Jammu and Kangra. Gold painted bow and arrow of Shah Jehan and a number carpentary tools make an important section of the display. The museum also has Shahnama and Sikandernama hand written manuscripts in Persian.
