On international museum day, Pink city got a new gift that adds another feather to its crown. A new tourist destination, Khazana Mahal was introduced to the Pink City on the occasion. It is a gallery that exhibits a unique collection of rare gems and jewellery, crafts.
Khazana Mahal is a museum set up in a 100-year-old heritage haveli, which exhibits more than 2,000 pieces of real and rare gemstones and jewellery. There are over 50 different types and each of them defines a unique character. Whether it’s an ancient artifact, precious gem, antique statue, or a magnificent painting, they carry a story.
When you enter Khazana Mahal, you are demonstrated with an introductory audio-visual show to introduce you to what is in store along with giving you a sneak peek into the quest of a stone to a beautiful jewel. This show elicits inquisitiveness about the many aspects of the elegant place.
The museum also showcases some really wonderful artifacts including the world’s largest finger ring, a piece of a real shooting star, the amazing floating stones used by Lord Ram, and replicas of the well-known Kohinoor diamond. The world’s largest and most unique collection of stamps and postcards that commemorate a gem or a jewel is also a part of the attraction.
Not just this, there is something for children as well. There are Puppet shows, nearly lost traditional games and fascinating magic shows crusted especially for kids. In addition, there is a Yoga and meditation center, a cafe with a jungle book theme having a comics segment covering the likes of Chacha Chaudhary and Sabu, Pinky, Superman, Batman, Vikram and Betal. Eco-tourism has been incorporated into the whole theme.
Khazana Mahal is situated close to the Jal Mahal and historically famous Parshuram Dwar, where the Ashwamedha Yagya was accomplished initially by Lord Ram and then by Raja Sawai Jai Singh in 1734.
