  • I loved Art gallery here. It was my first visit here and I was thrilled by these arts. Actually there will be discounts over painting's (these are real painting s) in this occasion. Government of Karnataka provide best facilities that it can. I really appreciate their work. Really I enjoyed a lot in this place. I will buy paintings next time I visit
  • The museum is amazing. All kinds of artworks are displayed, Tanjore art, abstract art, modern art and every other variety you can think of, including realistic artworks. The place is filled with trees giving a very calm atmosphere. The canteen is excellent too. Have visited many times. They have many exhibitions from time to time. The atmosphere is very peaceful. Good to spend some time with family.
