This place is rarely known even by locals, perhaps being out of the crowds keeps is well maintained and superclean. I recommend for morning lazy walks.

The Museum is a distance from the city center but is definitely worth a visit. The Collection is well researched and the space is best seen during daytime. Be prepared to enjoy a hearty meal with enriching conversations.

Not many people know this place. This is a quite place which have some beautiful art pieces. Its good for those who relish art relics. Its not widespread but I would say visit here will be short and crisp. Must go if you are an art lover.

This is a difficult to access, off the beaten track place that has a small but select collection of Indian artefacts. These are well displayed with supporting text displays - and set in a really green and serene environment. Well worth a visit on a winter day
