Punjab and Haryana : Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum, Amritsar - 10

Guys, Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum of Amritsar is a fine collection of paintings, arms, manuscripts and coins of 18th and 19th centuries are featured.

Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum, a must visit on any Amritsar Trip. The museum in its hay days was the summer palace of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. Today, it houses pictures, weapons and letters written to Maharaja Ranjit Singh by British Officers. The park is located in Deorhi Ram Bagh.

The summer palace of formerly king, Maharaga Ranjit Singh is now changed in to a wonderful Museum. It is encircled by the lovely garden Ram Bagh. Maharaja Renjith Singh is a outstanding figure, who had cut up a small concavity for himself in the history of India. The Museum displays objects connecting to Maharaja Ranjit Singh such as arms and armour, outstanding paintings and centuries old coins and manuscripts.

Most of the paintings that were put on display showcase the court and camp of the king and among them, the most significant one is the painting of the city of Lahore with all its elegant structures. This legendary king of Punjab had shown a worthy of high praise spirit of school of thought and it is chewed over on the coins that are displayed in the Museum. The manuscripts that were shown in the museum give a clear account of the rich history and tradition of the Sikh responsibility especially of the time of Ranjith Singh.

One among the major objects on sight is a parwana of Maharaja Ranjit Singh to Raja of Kapurthala, which holds the phocine of Ranjit Singh. The Sikhs are considered to be very brave people and the arms and ammunition section of the Museum shows a rich collection of weapons, which were encountered generally especially at the present time among the great warriors of that time.

A respected face of the medieval India, Maharaja Ranjith Singh beautifies a noteworthy position in the heart of the people of this region. This Museum is a genuine effort to depict the life of the great hero of the time that has elapsed in its entirety and is a worthy to watch spectacle in Amritsar.
