Bhuri Singh Museum is waiting to take us back in time. This museum is named after the former sovereign of Chamba Raja Bhuri Singh and its a treasure trove!
Established in 1908, the Bhuri Singh Museum is home to a vast collection of inherited art, antiques, and objects related to archaeology, anthropology, craft, and culture. With over 8500 objects, this museum is the perfect place to witness the rich cultural heritage of Chamba.
Initially, the museum only inherited the paintings of Raja Bhuri Singh, but now it has expanded to include copper plate grants, carved doors, and miniature paintings of old palaces. You can also find an impressive collection of coins, armour, jewellery, and musical instruments.
The highlight of the Bhuri Singh Museum is the exhibits of paintings from the Basohli School. These paintings showcase scenes from the Ramayana and Bhagvat Geeta, and are sure to leave you awestruck with their intricate details and vibrant colors.
So, if you’re a history buff or just love to explore new things, the Bhuri Singh Museum is a must-visit place in Chamba. Just remember, no touching the artefacts – let’s keep the time machine in one piece!
