Dogra Art Museum is in Panjtirthi in Jammu.

This place is like a mini Louvre, but instead of the Mona Lisa, you’ll find a collection of Pahari miniature paintings from Basohli that will knock your socks off.

In its younger days, it was known as the “Ajaib Ghar” which is Urdu for “Museum” (because apparently Urdu was the cool language to speak back in the day). It was originally housed in a mini hall with a collection of arms and old photographs, but now it’s located in the fancy pants Mubarak Mandi Palace.

The museum is a treasure trove of historical schools of paintings like Kangra, Basholi, and Jammu. The paintings are so detailed, you’ll feel like you’re peeking into a time machine.

But that’s not all, folks! The museum also has historical sculptures, terracotta figures, and even rare manuscripts of the Shahnama and Sikandernama in Persian on display.

But the real showstopper? The intricately decorated marble jharokhas inlaid with semi precious stones. And if that’s not enough, they even have Shah Jahan’s golden bow on display. So, if you’re an art freak visiting Jammu, this is a must-see spot. Trust us, you won’t be disappointed.
